We give a voice to those on the streets. As a monthly street paper, the One Step Away magazine advocates for social justice in our Philadelphia community and around the world.

You Don’t Know?

That’s ok. Sometimes our vendors get a bit outspoken or drown out in the noise of our urban Philly streets – but they’re increasingly becoming a prominent voice for local information. As an outlet, One Step Away is dedicated to doing its part in making our city and world a better place for everyone. Join us. Buy a magazine. Support a neighbor.

How it works:

Vendors invest $1.50 for each magazine then distribute them on the streets for $5, keeping the difference. Keep an eye out for the new issue! Every time you purchase a One Step Away Magazine you create meaningful income and personal growth opportunities for individuals experiencing homelessness or poverty.

Our Latest Issue – Volume 9 Issue6

Volume 9 Issue 6 Our First Home

We’re excited to share our newest issue and the news that OSA vendor Ram & his daughter Symphony moved into an apartment thanks toBerger Rental Communities’ Hope and Door Initiative. When Ram was 10-years-old he was taken out of his home and placed in a boys’ group home. Once he aged out of the foster system, he had no where to go. Now, he has his own apartment and can break the cycle of homelessness for his daughter Symphony. Get your copy today on the #streets of #philly to hear Ram’s story and see photos from move-in day. #streetpaper
