Sidewalk Homeless Memorial: Home


"The day that a person in America first stepped over another passed out on the street homeless was as monumental of a cultural moment as Neil Armstrong walking on the moon."....Ian Brennan (February, 2008)

Those forgotten in life, need not be forgotten in death. Thousands of people die homeless every year on the streets of America's cities, a passive persecution of the mentally distraught in our communities.

In February of 2008, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors approved the installment of five sidewalk memorial markers at the exact locations where those individuals left this world homeless, the first monument of its kind in the world.
