At the end of December, four communities around New Jersey will be holding National Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day events. These memorials offer providers, government officials, advocates and other members of the community an opportunity to remember the homeless men and women who died over the past year.
In an effort to maximize the impact of the day, the national co-sponsors encourage local and statewide organizations to hold memorials of their own. Last year, more than 157 cities in 40 states, including 6 New Jersey cities/counties, including the District of Columbia sponsored events to honor those who had died and to recommit to the task of ending homelessness.
