Homeless Memorial Day 2014

Every year for the past 28 years, NEOCH has held a candlelight vigil to remember those who passed away while struggling with homelessness.   This year the Vigil will be:

at St. Malachi--Metanoia Project (enter off the parking lot in the back of the Recreation Center) on December 21, 2014 at 7 p.m.

This is part of the National Homeless Memorial Day and Ohio Homeless Memorial Day that is held in over 100 cities around the United States.  Right now we are collecting the names of homeless people who passed away.  It is during the busy holiday season, but it is respectful to pause and remember those struggling with housing.  We have the list of names from the past on our website here.

We will organize a ceremony to read the names and say a prayer that we do not have to read the names of people who die homeless in 2015.  The vigil is held at a program that serves homeless people so it is nice to have the service witnessed by people experiencing homelessness.  Members of the Coalition and the public are invited to participate.   Below is a flyer that you can distribute to friends.
