Celebrating Life

On December 21st, Northeast Florida joined together to celebrate the lives of people who had passed while homeless during 2018.

With more than 100 people in attendance at the City Rescue Mission , words of remembrance and beautiful songs lifted our hearts.

Our greatest hope is that one day, there will be no names to read aloud. But until that day, we will continue to do our part to end homelessness.
