House The Homeless,
P.O. Box 2312
1993, House The Homeless dedicated a Memorial Plaque and
Tree of Remembrance to those individuals who have died in Austin, Texas
as a result of being homeless. Each year we hold a Sunrise Memorial Service
November on the shores of Town Lake.
Since 1993, hundreds of individuals have died because of homelessness.
Because the homeless population is hard to count to begin with,
these are just the individuals that we are aware of.
In 2007 alone, 93 homeless individuals died on the streets of Austin.
