Homeless Memorial Planning Committee

Please join us as we plan this year's Homeless Memorial Day event. 

Our Planning Committee meets each Monday from 2:30-4pm until the Homeless Memorial Day event which will occur on Monday, December 21.

.Sign-up below to get on the invite email list for our planning meetings.

As most of you know, this is an annual gathering during which we honor those persons who were homeless or formerly homeless and passed away this year, and we recommit ourselves to ending homelessness in our city. Homeless Persons Memorial Day is a national event that takes place on or around December 21, the first day of winter and the longest night of the year. Since the early 1990s, a coalition of Philadelphia advocates, providers, and homeless/formerly homeless persons have commemorated the event locally with a special gathering to remember our homeless sisters and brothers who have died and to recommit ourselves to working to end homelessness in our city.

While this event may look very different than the large gatherings we have hosted in the past, it is perhaps more important than ever to remember and honor the lives lost this year.

As always, we need a solid core of organizers, volunteers, and committee members to make this significant event possible.

If you cannot be present at the meetings but want to help in the organizing for Homeless Memorial Day, or if you want to volunteer the day of the event,
please contact memorial@projecthome.org or 215-232-7272, ext. 3042. You can also follow along on Facebook.
