Homeless vigil

    Advocates for the homeless will hold a vigil next week to remember the more than 90 homeless and formerly homeless people who died in Philadelphia this year.  The group is calling for an end to homelessness.

    The vigil, which will be held in LOVE Park between 4:30 and 5:30 next Tuesday, will also include service providers, religious leaders, city representatives, and others who are or have been homeless.
