One Step Away, a monthly tabloid, will make its Delaware debut on Monday in Wilmington. The newspaper is published by Resources for Human Development, a national nonprofit human services organization, and may eventually feature stories generated by residents of Wilmington homeless shelters.
Initially, however, the stories will be by homeless shelter residents from Philadelphia, where One Step Away was launched almost a year ago. Homeless people write, illustrate and take photos for the paper as well as sell it.
The newspaper is distributed on the street and its circulation averages between 5,000 and 10,000 a month. The paper costs $1.
