Homeless Memorial Day

The Philadelphia Homeless Memorial Day Planning Committee is reaching out to you to help gather the names of persons who were homeless or formerly homeless who died in 2021 (and since last year’s remembrance on December 21, 2020). Stay tuned to the Homeless Memorial Day site and Facebook page for more information on this year's event.

We want to have as thorough a list of names as possible to remember and honor this year. We need the names of Philadelphians who either experienced homeless at the time of their death or who previously experienced homelessness.  Please submit those names via the form below, or email names and information to [email protected] or to Wen Epstein-Fisher at 215-232-7272 x3068 by 5 p.m. on Monday, December 13. 

Please include as much information as you have and feel comfortable sharing about each individual. We are requesting this information only to verify identity; only the names will be publicized at the event.  

We need your help to make sure that we are including ALL the people in our community who were homeless and formerly homeless who passed away this year. Please share this form with your colleagues.
