Homeless Persons' Memorial and Candlelight Vigil

Each year, near the the winter solstice, we light a candle for those who died on the streets of our city. The cause was homelessness.
Similar events are 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. Please join us in remembering those who have passed as a result of homelessness.

This year we will hold a memorial on December 17th at 5:30-6:00 pm
Come listen to the beautiful choir and give rememberance to those we have lost. Candles and light refreshments will be provided.
