Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day

Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day was held on December 21, 2011 – this was a very special time to honor those who experience homelessness.  Our community united together at Haywood Street Congregation to remember those who have died while experiencing homelessness in the past year, support those who currently experience homelessness, and commit to ending homelessness for all.

The contributions of many people made the service memorable, so thank you to everyone who participated. Even if you were unable to attend this year’s service, there are many opportunities ahead to be involved with the Homeless Initiative’s efforts.
