About Us

Our Mission


         The Bridge Street Newspaper aims to bridge the gap between homeless and sheltered by providing the homeless community of Memphis with tools to obtain a self-generated income, college students with publication and non-profit experience, and Memphians with increased community engagement and awareness of issues surrounding homelessness.
