MUM is one of the co-sponsors of the National Homeless Persons Memorial Day, held on the December 21st, the longest night of the year. The purpose of the event is to raise public awareness regarding homelessness, but more importantly to remember those in our community who were homeless and who have died during the year. It is a recognition too that people who are homeless are often the victims of violence, often die of preventable medical conditions because they lack healthcare, and may also experience mental illness or addiction that further complicate their ability to find permanent housing.

If you or your congregation would like to be part of this years event contact Linda Ketcham at LINDA@EMUM.ORG (608)256-0906.
