Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day 2022

Join us on Thursday, December 15th as we remember our fellow New Yorkers who passed away while unstably housed or homelessness in 2022.

Care For the Homeless and Urban Pathways host a Homeless Personsโ€™ Memorial Day observance each winter solstice. The ceremony commemorates those who passed away that year without stable housing or due to the stressors of homelessness. Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day 2022 features music, reflections, eulogies, a reading of names of the people we have lost and a to-go meal.

It will also be in-person for the first time since 2019.

Doors open at 4:45 p.m.
Program begins at 5:30 p.m.
