Each year since 1990, on or near the first day of winter and the longest night of the year, the National Coalition for the Homeless (NCH) has sponsored National Homeless Persons' Memorial Day to bring attention to the tragedy of homelessness, the lack of affordable housing, and to remember our friends without stable housing who have paid the ultimate price for our nation's failure to address this crisis. This event is open to the public; all are invited to participate in solidarity with those who believe health care, housing, and physical safety are basic human rights, not benefits to be earned.
