Homeless Persons' Memorial Service and Celebration of Life

December 21, 4:30pm - Open Doors, 4 Merritt Street, Norwalk, CT 06854

In spite of all our efforts, the ravages of homelessness continue to affect people here in our community and across the country. December 21st is recognized as Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day in the United States. It falls on the shortest day of the year, followed by the longest night, and is representative of the endless nights that someone might have if it were not for the care we provide together.

Each year, Open Doors hosts a short service to remember those who were lost and celebrate their lives.
