House the Homeless Memorial Service – Nov. 22nd at 7 AM

In 1993, House The Homeless dedicated a Memorial Plaque and Tree of Remembrance to those individuals who have died in Austin, Texas as a result of being homeless. Each year we hold a Sunrise Memorial Service
every November on the shores of Town Lake.

Please join us Sunday, November 22nd, 2008 at 7 am for the 16th Homeless Memorial Sunrise Service. Austin City Council Member Cheryl Cole will be the keynote speaker, and Colleen Troxell will lead the service. The Homeless Memorial and Tree of Remembrance are located on Auditorium Shores on Town Lake at South 1st and Riverside Streets, just 75 yards east of the Stevie Ray Vaughn statue and west of the Fanny Davis Gazebo.

Since 1993, hundreds of individuals have died because of homelessness. Because the homeless population is hard to count to begin with, these are just the individuals that we are aware of.

In 2007 alone, 93 homeless individuals died on the streets of Austin.
