Homeless Memorial

Brevard Homeless Coalition Memorial Services

December 21: The first day of winter, the longest night of the year

People in your community will die without a home this year. While we must try to prevent the loss of every life, we also need to recognize the reality of conditions that individuals experiencing homelessness face and plan to memorialize them on National Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day.

In the past several years, hundreds of cities, representing more than 30 states and the District of Columbia, have participated in the National Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day. As we emerge from the global pandemic, it is important to remember all those we lost and pledge to rebuild a strong social safety net for everyone residing in the United States. Let’s make this a year of increased awareness by organizing even more memorial events across the nation.

The National Homeless Memorial services take place every year on Dec 21st, the longest night of the year. Last year we had 136 who lost their lives while living on the streets in Brevard County. 

Homeless Memorial 2023

On December 21st, the coldest night of the year, we will honor those who passed while experiencing homelessness. Our friends and neighbors may not have had someone with them when they passed or did not have a proper memorial. This year, we want to capture every one of our friends that pass on to a new life in spirit. Please add let us know if a friend or neighbor passed away in 2023 so that their name will be read and honored in the community at the Homeless Memorial on Dec 21st.
