Homeless Memorial & Candle Light Vigil

Today was the Homeless candle light vigil and memorial to remember the 60 homeless people that passed away this year on the streets of Las Vegas.

Each year since 1996, Linda Lera Randle El from Strait from the streets has sponsored this memorial in Las Vegas to remember and honor those homeless who have died and to recommit to the task of ending homelessness.  About 150 people turned out to light a candle and to remember…

This year, 60 homeless people have died, that is a little more than 1 a week. This number is up from last year where 46 homeless died.

With more and more people losing their jobs, homes, families this year. Please remember that you can make a difference to people lives by donating to those who are less fortunate than you.
