Homeless Memorial Day and Requium November 2

On November 2, 2015, people will come together for fellowship and worship to commemorate the lives of homeless individuals who have died during the past year.  Homeless Memorial Day and Requiem is supported by the many faith communities and service agencies that provide meals, housing, employment, and invaluable support to our neighbors who are living without housing.  Partners are Cascade United Methodist Church, the Cathedral of St. Philip, Zion Hill Baptist Church, and The Community at Peachtree-Pine. You are invited to be a part. The event opens National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Month

Please let them know you will join in this most important day, celebrating the lives and mourning the deaths of the countless homeless men, women and children whose lives are shortened and lost because of their homelessness.  This year Homelessness Awareness month is dedicated to the desperate need for shelter and housing for homeless women and children. An average of 90 – 100 homeless women and children are sleeping on mats on the floor of the Task Force because there is NO SHELTER AVAILABLE for them elsewhere.
