2016 Homeless Memorial Day

  • Homeless Memorial Day
Let us honor our homeless sisters and brothers who have passed away and recommit ourselves to working to end homelessness.

Remember * Hope * Heal

As the weather gets colder, we are planning for the 2016 Philadelphia Homeless Memorial Day event.  This year's event will be:

2016 Homeless Memorial Day
Wednesday, December 21
5:00 - 6:00 pm
Thomas Paine Plaza,Municipal Services Building
1401 JFK Boulevard, Center City Philadelphia

As we approach the first official day of winter, hundreds of Philadelphians will gather to remember those homeless and formerly homeless Philadelphians who died in 2016 and to call for an end to homelessness.

As we gather this year, we must recognize that, while we have made much progress in Philadelphia, homelessness persists, and we cannot become complacent.  We must still open our eyes and truly see our sisters and brothers who experience homelessness.  Poverty, health crises, and drugs are still claiming lives, and we must all work together – including our elected officials – to expand effective solutions and build a truly just society for all persons.

Please join us as we honor the lives of our homeless and formerly homeless sisters and brothers, and as we call on all Philadelphians and all Americans to recommit ourselves to ending homelessness.
