December 21 is considered the longest night of the year and the night can seem even longer without a warm place to sleep.
That's why the Community Health Center of Lubbock held a candlelight vigil, to remember all those who have died homeless.

That's the number of people living on the streets, and they say there's an additional 2,000 people living in the city without permanent housing.
