Since 2003, the Homeless Remembrance Project—a collaborative effort of homeless women, faith community leaders, designers, artists, social service providers and other friends—has worked to create places of hope, healing, and beauty to honor and remember homeless people who’ve died in King County. Our concept is twofold: a beautiful, bronze “Tree of Life” sculpture and gathering place at Victor Steinbrueck Park (north of Pike Place Market), and “Leaves of Remembrance,” embedded in Right of Way locations throughout the City.

Leaves of Remembrance bear names of homeless women and men who’ve died, so that every person will have a place to be remembered.

The Tree of Life sculpture and community gathering place, pictured to the left, is companion to the Leaves, and has been planted and dedicated in Victor Steinbrueck Park, north of Pike Place Market! Its beautiful Tree elements have Leaf cutouts, representing those who’ve been lost.
