Please join the National HCH Council on June 21, the Summer Solstice, as we celebrate individuals who have overcome barriers to housing and affirm our continuing mission to eliminate homelessness. The Summer Solstice is the first day of summer and the longest day of the year. It is a day filled with light, and it is one in which we can celebrate the strength, resilience, and spirit of individuals who have overcome the multitude of barriers people experiencing homelessness face in obtaining stable housing.
Read our Summer Solstice Celebration page to learn more about how Health Care for the Homeless organizations are recognizing this event—and find out how you can create your own. We hope you will become involved in this celebration, which serves as a unique complement to Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day, a yearly event on the Winter Solstice (December 21) which honors individuals who have lost their lives while enduring the tragedy of homelessness.
