Since 2003, the Homeless Remembrance Project – a collaborative effort of homeless women, faith community leaders, designers, artists, social service providers and other friends – has worked to create places of hope, heading, and beauty to honor and remember homeless people who’ve died in King County. Our committee designed, developed and now maintains the only permanent public memorial for homeless people anywhere in the world. http://homelessremembrance.org/.
Our concept is twofold:
- The Tree of Life sculpture and community gathering place, in Victor Steinbrueck Park (north of Pike Place Market)
- Leaves of Remembrance on Seattle sidewalks bear the names of those who have died, and at the site: www.fallenleaves.org we share their stories. We currently have 14 leaf host sites and 257 leaves all over the City.
We’re a fun committee, meeting just once a month on Capitol Hill. We really need website maintenance support, and also committee members and an administrative intern or helper. Please consider joining our effort to honor those who’ve experienced homelessness who have died. contact 206-956-0334 or firstname.lastname@example.org
