Toledo Streets Newspaper (TSN) was founded in 2009 and is part of an international association of street papers (International Network of Street Papers), all focused on providing financial opportunities for upward mobility for financial and domestic autonomy. TSN became an independent 510(c)(3) in 2014. Since then, we have experienced exponential growth with respect to the number of clients served, papers sold, and self-reported earnings by vendors. In December of 2017 TSN experienced a transition and now operates under a new 501(c)(3) called Toledo Streets Workforce Development, Corp. Currently, TSN staffs one full time executive director, one full time vendor manager and two to three interns annually. TSN’s vision is to inspire hope, foster community, and cultivate change in individuals and in society.
