StreetWise is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to help those who are currently, or are at risk of becoming homeless. StreetWise accomplishes this mission by publishing and distributing newspapers through street vendors who purchase the newspapers at a wholesale price, and sell it for retail value.
"StreetWise: The Movie" is a full length documentary which follows the lives of six StreetWise vendors telling inspirational stories of how each uses the StreetWise opportunity to become financially self-sufficient and chase his or her dreams. This is NOT another look at homelessness in Chicago, rather a look into the people of one organization who's method just might be the solution to the problem.
