Remembering our neighbors without homes who passed away in 2016


The following people were known to have experienced homelessness, and to have passed away in 2016. Some died of chronic illness or acute conditions exacerbated by not having a home.  Some died on the streets or while staying in emergency or transitional housing. Some were victims of physical violence.  Some spent the last months of their lives in their own apartments. Many died alone and, but for a few, forgotten.
