At least 41 individuals from DC’s homeless community have passed away this year: 26 individuals, ages 37 to 68, died without housing; 15 individuals, ages 32 to 70, matched with housing died before move-in.
Our work to end chronic homelessness is more urgent than ever. We hope you will join The People For Fairness Coalition for the annual vigil on December 20-21st to honor the memory of our homeless neighbors and recommit to the work to end homelessness.
