Winter solstice, when the northern hemisphere sinks into its deepest point of darkness, creates the longest night of the year.

Tonight, the Women Driver’s Interfaith Group and Hope 4 Restoration are honored to present a meaningful interfaith service to remember the 329 homeless children, women and men who died in 2020 in Orange County, without a permanent, healthy, safe or secure place to call home.

This memorial service features beautiful music and songs, interfaith prayers, and the reading of the names of those who died. Our video also features this year’s memorial wall created by Hope 4 Restoration. Please join and watch the service here; the video goes live at 7 p.m.  This evening’s program is here.

This annual event, held since 2014, brings attention to homelessness in Orange County. Our goal is to remember those who have died and to strengthen our resolve to work for a world where no life is lived — or lost — to homelessness.

We give thanks for the many who were involved and supported this years’ service and who share their hearts and minds to end homelessness in our communities throughout Orange County.
