Events and Observances
Each year, the National Health Care for the Homeless Council’s National Consumer Advisory Board joins other organizations across the United States in holding observances of events which recognize the dignity, successes, and lives of people experiencing homelessness. These include:
Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day
The National Consumer Advisory Board, the National Coalition for the Homeless, and the National Health Care for the Homeless Council encourage our constituents to organize or take part in Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day events on or around December 21st, the first day of winter and the longest night of the year.
Health Care for the Homeless Day
HCH Day is a part of National Health Center Week, a celebration of the Health Center program and its critical role in the health care safety net, which is primarily organized by the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC).
Summer Solstice Success Celebrations
Each year on June 21, the Summer Solstice, the first day of summer and the longest day of the year, several cities have begun to celebrate those who have overcome homelessness, and to affirm that we can end homelessness for everyone.
