Virginia Beach Homeless Persons’ Memorial Service to be Held Dec. 21

​In observance of National Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day, Housing & Neighborhood Preservation, the Virginia Beach Human Rights Commission and BEACH Community Partnership will hold a memorial service on Wednesday, Dec. 21, at 6 p.m. at the Housing Resource Center, 104 N. Witchduck Road. The community is invited to join us as we pause and reflect on the longest night of the year to commemorate the lives of the individuals who have died while homeless.

“No one entity can tackle the issue of homelessness on its own,” said Ruth Hill, director of Housing & Neighborhood Preservation. “We are grateful for our caring community and our many faith and nonprofit partners who share our commitment to making homelessness rare, brief, and nonrecurring in Virginia Beach. This night is a solemn reminder that our work must continue and one we hope will inspire more to join this community effort so that everyone is able to have a safe warm place to call home.”
