Portland’s Homeless Persons Annual Memorial Vigil

The longest night of homelessness
December 21, 2011 | Preble Street
More Information:

Portland’s Homeless Persons Annual Memorial Vigil is a time to remember our homeless friends who have died and to recommit ourselves to the task of ending homelessness.

On the night of the winter solstice, the longest night of the year, a candlelight procession starts at the Preble Street Resource Center and proceeds to Monument Square where a memorial ceremony is dedicated to those homeless persons in our community who have died.

All persons who are homeless, who have been homeless, who work with the homeless or who have compassion for the homeless are welcome.
