It is the sad experience of homeless people and those who work with them that a high number of homeless people experience poor and often deteriorating health whilst homeless. For some homeless people poor health ends with their passing away, for too many others in the homeless community death is unexpected and shocking.
Thankfully, many, many homeless people also recover from their ailments and thereafter prosper independently in mainstream accommodation and society.
The service affords the homeless community, family, friends and workers an opportunity to collectively remember those who have passed away and to celebrate their lives. It gives us a chance to come to terms with the loss of our friends.
Just as importantly, we also get the chance to rededicate our efforts in support of the homeless community and those living on the margins of our community.
