Join us this Sunday, November 14th at 6:58 am for prayer, song, and fellowship as we remember and pay our respects to the homeless women and men who were lost this year while living on the streets of Austin.
The one hour service will take place at the Homeless Memorial & Tree of Remembrance located on Auditorium Shores at South First Street and Riverside Drive. It is just 75 yards east of the Stevie Ray Vaughan statue and just west of the Fanny Davis Gazebo. Sara Hickman will be singing.
Immediately following the Memorial, we’ll continue with the events of National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week including a book signing of Richard Troxell’s new book entitled Looking Up at the Bottom Line. All proceeds go to ending homelessness. Coffee, cocoa, orange juice and breakfast tacos (from the Hyatt) will be served.

In 1993, Richard Troxell obtained a spot on now Lady Bird Lake to plant a live oak and place a memorial plaque, which reads:
It is the essence of depression
It is immoral
It is socially corrupt
And it is an act of violence.
In the memory of those who have lost their lives on the streets of Austin.
