Spare Change News was founded in Boston, Massachusetts in 1992 by a group of homeless individuals and a housed advocate. It's purpose was to elevate the voices of homeless, homeless vulnerable, and other economically disadvantaged people in the greater Boston area. The newspaper is sold for .25 cents per copy to street vendors who resell it at a profit.
Spare Change News is an affiliate of Street News Service, the news agency of the International Network of Street Papers (INSP), an organization devoted to fighting poverty and homelessness throughout the world. INSP's 107 member newspapers are sold at a profit by homeless and housing vulnerable people in 37 countries across 6 continents.
