Portland’s Annual Homeless Persons’ Memorial Vigil

The longest night of the year is a time to remember our homeless friends who have died and to recommit ourselves to the task of ending homelessness.

A candlelight procession will start at the Preble Street Resource Center at 4:30 p.m., and will proceed to Monument Square for a ceremony dedicated to those persons who have died in our community.

All persons who are homeless, who have been homeless, who work with people who are homeless, or who are thankful they are not homeless are welcome to participate.

Cosponsored by Preble Street, Mercy Hospital, Maine Medical Center, Greater Portland Health, and the City of Portland.
