The first ever World Homeless Day was held on October 10, 2010. World Homeless Day was organized to draw attention to homelessness locally and provide opportunities for the community to get involved in responding to homelessness, while taking advantage of the stage an ‘international day’ provides. Events were held around the world from Toledo and Calgary to London and Bangladesh, and everywhere in between. Hopefully this day will continue to grow and bring even more attention to the issue of homelessness.
If you did anything to "celebrate" World Homeless Day we would love to know about it!
