Homeless Persons' Memorial and Candlelight Vigil

December 18, 2014: 5:30pm

Join us to honor and light a candle for those who died on the streets of our city.
The cause was homelessness.
 
Fourth Street Clinic’s Consumer Advisory Board and the Salt Lake County Homeless Coordinating Council host a Candlelight Vigil for Homeless Person’s Memorial Day, Thursday, December 18. The event remembers the homeless Utahns who paid the ultimate price for a life without a home in 2014.
 
Similar events are being held across the country to honor the sometimes forgotten and to raise awareness that disease is 3 to 4 times more prevalent in homeless populations and the average age at death while homeless is three decades earlier than those who have a home. With more affordable health care and housing, these numbers can be reduced and people can live longer and healthier lives.
