We are the hosts of the Toronto Homeless Memorial.
Homeless Memorial takes place at noon on Tuesday, March 12 to remember the 700 plus individuals who have died on the streets of Toronto. This short memorial takes place outside of Church of The Holy Trinity and is followed by a light lunch inside the church. Last month’s memorial generated a bit of media attention as the 700th name was added to the memorial in the midst of a shelter bed shortage.

Plan on coming Good Friday afternoon to be in solidarity with those being crucified today, including youth, aboriginal people, [...]
