In December 2021 members of the Nashville community gathered at Riverfront Park to honor the men and women who were homeless or had experienced chronic homelessness and passed away this last year.
“It’s important that we honor and recognize those we lost this past year,” said Rev. Glenn Cranfield, president and CEO of Nashville Rescue Mission. “These men and women were mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters. Their lives have meaning and value. They matter to God, and they matter to us.”
We remember them with your prayers and support, and we pray fewer lives will perish due to homelessness in the years to come.
