This symbol was used by American "hoboes" in the earlier part of the twentieth century. It indicated "if you are sick, they will take care of you here".
Street Health is "Going Green”! As part of this campaign we would like to offer our donors the opportunity to begin receiving their Bi-Annual newsletter by email.
Our goal is to switch 30% of our donors to an E-Newsletter by the end of the year for a savings of over $2000. Any savings will go towards our much needed programs and services. Join the movement!
