National Homeless Memorial Day commemorates the First Day of Winter, Longest Night of the Year, and the start of another long, cold, painful season for the Homeless.  A coalition led by Garden State Episcopal Community Development Corporation will hold Hudson County's Sixth Annual Homeless Persons' Memorial Day commemoration, an Inter-Faith Service to include remembrances of homeless neighbors, friends & loved ones who have passed away.


2013 Longest Night Campaign, Kickoff Event ​

Ending Homelessness, One Life at a Time


Every autumn, the days get shorter and the nights get longer.  As we warm our homes for the holidays, it gets colder on the streets.  For people with nowhere to live, life gets harder and harder.  At Garden State Episcopal CDC, we are working to change that.

We need your support for our Longest Night Campaign:  Ending Homelessness, One Life at a Time.  We will launch this season of giving on November 21st, 2013 at 6 pm at Casino in the Park, 1 Nunda Ave, Jersey City, NJ 07304.  This event will kick off one month of raising awareness on the plight of homelessness, raising funds to end this crisis and collecting much needed supplies, all culminating in our annual Homeless Memorial Service which will be held during the week of December 21st, 2013 – the winter solstice, the longest night of the year, and the national homeless memorial.

In order to make this effort a success, we are asking for support and assistance from the entire community. You can help by becoming an event sponsorpurchasing an Ad for our program that will reach hundreds of business and community leaders, donating items for our silent auction, and purchasing a ticket to attend this event.

On behalf of the Longest Night Campaign Committee, our Honorary Committee Chair, Hudson County Executive Thomas A. DeGise, and those with no place to call home, thank you.
