Change of Heart is a street newspaper produced and sold in Lawrence, Kansas. It is published every 3 months. It was created by Craig Sweets in late 1996.[1][2] who says the idea of starting a street newspaper was given to him by Michael Stoops. Stoops is the director of the National Coalition for the Homeless.[3][4] The paper is a member of the North American Street Newspaper Association (NASNA),[5] and it is the only street newspaper in Kansas.[1]

The paper says 1200 people read it every 3 months.[3][4] In 1999, the NASNA said the paper was the "Best New Street Newspaper in North America".[3] In 1999, the paper was a single page printed on both sides and published using local churches' photocopiers.[3] Since then, the paper is 10 pages long, and it has its own staff and computers.[1]
