Homeless Memorial Service
Aurora held our 17th Annual Community Homeless Memorial Service on December 5, 2017. Aurora and our community partners would like to remember those who have passed away this last year while being homeless. Our next Memorial Service will be in December 2018, follow us online or via our Aurora Facebook page to be able to attend in 2018.
The National Coalition for the Homeless instituted the practice in 1990 and encourages communities across the nation to remember those who have died because of the day to day realities and long-term effects of homelessness. The memorial service is held during the winter months, which marks the beginning of a particularly difficult and dangerous time for people who are homeless.
