Street Roots

for those who cannot afford free speech

Our Mission

Street Roots creates income opportunities for people experiencing homelessness and poverty by producing a newspaper and other media that are catalysts for individual and social change.

Andrew Hogan

Position: 
Development Director
Relationship to Street Roots: 

Andrew originally hails from Upstate New York, but has called Portland home for 11 years now. A fundraiser with a degree in Theatre & Gender Studies, most recently, he worked for Zenger Farm and helped grow the Urban Grange. He sees Street Roots and the vendor program as part of the fabric of Portland and is excited to be on the team. When not putting the "fun" in "fundraising", you might find him sipping a microbrew, eating a bagel, cooking up something in his kitchen or randomly injecting Buffy quotes into conversation to see if people notice.

Our Friends Speak About Street Roots

Between the FYI-texts: 'Did you see this in Street Roots?', scrolling by the happy #NewPaperFriday selfies on social media, and picking up the weekly with my groceries — the Street Roots experience is totally integrated into my Portland life. We are a lucky city to have the love, dedication, and tenacity for good news and better community that Street Roots brings us every day of the year.
