Annual Homeless Memorial 2019

On Saturday, December 21, 2019, members of the Nashville community gathered at Riverfront Park to honor and remember the men and women who were homeless or had experienced chronic homelessness and passed away during the year.


“We remember those who are no longer with us—they were mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters. Their lives matter to God, and they matter to us,” said Rev. Glenn Cranfield, president and CEO of Nashville Rescue Mission. “With your prayers and support, we remember them and pray fewer lives will be lost due to homelessness in the years to come.”
