Monday, December 21 is National Homeless Memorial Day
Like so many organizations across the country, the Greater Cincinnati Homeless Coalition typically holds a candlelight vigil to honor the many people who have died young because of homelessness.
Because of COVID-19 and the need to keep gatherings small, they will be having a virtual vigil this year at 5:30 Pm on Monday, December 21.
Also, at 2 PM on Monday the 21st the Coalition will host a small, socially distant, press conference in Washington Park, directly across from Music Hall. They will present on the significant loss of life caused by homelessness, and how we, as a community can prevent this human loss.
Updates will be provided on efforts to provide safe, warm shelter this winter, as the number of people living outdoors has increased and the capacity of shelter has decreased due to the need to socially distance. The Coalition will talk about what we they are doing to prevent hundreds of people from being forced to live outdoors this winter.
