In 2013 one of the guys I had been working with passed away after falling down a flight of stairs at one of our local shelters. That began a quest for answers and to do something.
In his book Holy Discontent, Bill Hybels wrote about having our Popeye moments. As Popeye would say “that’s all I can stands I can’t stands it no more.” Every year we continue to lose more and more men and women from our homeless and marginalized community. Yearly, in October we hold an annual memorial to remember those we have lost each year. Throughout the year I am asked to perform memorials in various locations in our city as well as in the park. We recently had our 8th annual Homeless Memorial. This year we have already seen an increase in deaths due to the Opioid crises. The video is a promo link to our 2021 Homeless Memorial
