Pearls of Remembrance


On Thursday, December 17 we remembered the lives of 155 people with the experience of homelessness who died in 2020.

Why “Pearls of Remembrance?”  

Pearls are a gift traditionally given to mark 30th anniversaries. They represent wisdom and everlasting love and are stunning in their natural form—fitting inspiration for this year’s memorial.
