Dec. 21: Homeless Memorial Vigils

Communities across New Hampshire hold candlelight vigils to honor those who died in 2017, whose lives were shortened by homelessness.

On the first night of winter, and the longest night of the year, we acknowledge the loss of those who suffered poverty and homelessness in our own communities. We rededicate ourselves to the work of ensuring that all of our neighbors have a safe, decent place to call home.

Remember to dress warm and bring a flashlight!
