The Streetlight‘s aim is raise awareness and break stereotypes for individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Mercer County, New Jersey. Published twice a year, the publication features articles about local news and events in and around Trenton, in addition to poetry, artwork, and op-eds by local residents. One of the most popular features of The Streetlight is the Mercer County Resource Guide, which includes a variety of services, shelters, and food banks to assist people experiencing homelessness and/or poverty. Copies of The Streetlight‘s print edition can be picked up at over 60 sites throughout the Trenton area.

The publication previously known as The Wall is now The Streetlight and this website is no longer updated. Please visit our new website for current issues and updated information.


In 2018, The Wall changed its name to The Streetlight and transitioned to a new website. Although our name is changing, the content that our readers have come to expect from us is not. In fact, The Streetlight will feature even more coverage of homelessness in Mercer County in order to continue shining a light on this crisis at the local level. Click here to read more about our new name.
