A crowd of two hundred gathered in Dilworth Park to memorialize Philadelphia's homeless last night.

"Wayne Leffield, Larry Bailey ..." these are names of 151 homeless and formerly homeless people who died in Philadelphia this year. At the memorial, Jennine Miller director of public policy for project HOME emphasized people do not have to die on the street.

"We have solutions to homelessness and we need to make sure that everybody has affordable housing, jobs, the services that they need," she said.
