Please join us as we honor the lives of our homeless and formerly homeless Philadelphians who died in 2017 and to call for an end to homelessness.
We have made much progress in Philadelphia in combatting homelessness, but the crisis persists. The opioid epidemic is claiming hundreds of lives. We face the prospects of massive cuts in housing and healthcare. Many youth in our community are at risk of homelessness.
We are inviting you to be part of the planning group and help organize this year’s gathering.
