Vouch for it

The Homeless Alliance provides an alternative to spare change.


News

Greg Horton
When Shane Warren Speegle told an Oklahoma City police officer he made $60,000 last year by panhandling, the story quickly went viral thanks to The Huffington Post. Locally, KOCO Channel 5 broadcast the story, but with no way to verify Speegle’s income, it might be wise to take his claim with a dose of skepticism.

Marking 40 years of God’s work


Commentary

Rick Denny
In 1973, two Oklahomans aided only by generous hearts, a few resources and a powerful faith in God opened a homeless shelter and soup kitchen in downtown Oklahoma City.. The humble project that Sister Ruth Wynne and Sister Betty Adams called Jesus House is marking four decades of serving the city’s homeless and hungry.

Word on the street

The Curbside Chronicle aims to bring the homeless into your homes, one issue at a time.


News

Louis Fowler
A new newspaper has hit the streets of Oklahoma City, one that is made and sold by the people who live on the streets. The Curbside Chronicle is the metro’s attempt at a social enterprise magazine, also called a “street paper,” that provides an area’s homeless community with both a voice and a means of income.
