Join us at this Covid-safe gathering in memory of those who lost their lives in 2020 while living outside. This memorial service honors the dignity and worth of people without shelter–all of whom we’ve lost last year.
They are the faceless names of those who many of us did not personally know; yet we gather to honor their memory and give voice to the societal issue of homelessness. This service is a time for family, friends, advocates, community leaders and service providers to come together and show respect to the valued lives of our most vulnerable citizens.
In many cases, this service will be the only commemoration of their passing.
Wear a mask and gather with us for this candlelight service in their memory.
