Those of us without housing should have the same rights of remembrance as the rest of us. However, many do not have the resources to bring about this wish. This website provides a digital space that allows friends, family, service providers, outreach workers and those of us who are homeless to remember those who have died.

The Toronto Homeless Memorial Network is a collaborative group, working with many people in the community. The homeless memorial’s website is an extension of the community who physically gather once per month. We meet at the Church of the Holy Trinity, every second Tuesday of the month at noon.

We are also here to state that people dying while homeless is not okay and we need to work diligently together to prevent this ongoing crisis. In the meantime, we will endeavour to offer more dignity and struggle for more justice for those who have passed away while homeless.

Thank you for visiting. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at: torontohmn@gmail.com
