At the end of December, 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.

As background, each year since 1990, on or near the first day of winter and the longest night of the year, the national co-sponsors organize National Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day to bring attention to the tragedy of homelessness and to remember our homeless friends who have paid the ultimate price for our nation’s failure to end homelessness.
