– remembrances shared at the 2021 Memorial Service
IW CEO Courtney Hall and IW Senior Case Manager Katie Guzzey joined nonprofit, faith, and governmental leaders at a service honoring the memory of individuals who had experienced homelessness and passed away during 2020 and 2021. The event was an opportunity to reflect on the importance of ensuring a home for everyone in Montgomery County and that the experience of homelessness is rare, brief and one-time only.
Courtney, Katie, and others, including County Executive Marc Elrich and Councilmembers Albornoz, Glass, and Katz, read the names of those who had passed away and shared a remembrance of each person named. The event was organized by the Montgomery County Interagency Commission on Homelessness.
