Tribute for homeless that died in the streets

Names are read at annual San Rafael remembrance

By Richard Halstead

Marin’s homeless community paused this week to remember those who died while living on the streets.

A memorial hosted by the San Rafael-based Street Chaplaincy held Wednesday at First Presbyterian Church of San Rafael featured a reading of the names of 21 people who died while homeless in Marin this year and 45 people who died last year.

Marin County’s Department of Health and Human Services records show a total of 36 people died in Marin during 2022 who were without shelter, or died soon after being housed after previously being homeless.
