Responding to COVID-19: We need your help to save lives.

People experiencing homelessness are at an especially high risk for contracting COVID-19, because social distancing and sanitation are virtually impossible for those living on the street and in congregate shelter facilities with shared spaces.

We are currently continuing all programs, including shelter operations at all 8 sites, Homeless Outreach, Street Medicine, and case management support for those recently housed. We need your help to continue offering these life-saving services.

Sacred Heart Shelter

Constructed in just 30 days, Sacred Heart Shelter was a swift response to an immediate need. HOPE Services, in conjunction with several community partners, jumped into action to build this 20 unit shelter for displaced seniors.


HOPE Services provides assistance to our displaced clients as they navigate and apply for disaster relief services. Although our primary focus is housing we connect our clients to our partner organizations, primarily through HI-DARRT, where they
may be eligible for medical, legal, health, and financial assistance.

Were you impacted by the Kilauea eruption or Hurricane Lane?

HI-DARRT may be able to help.​

The Hawaii Island Disaster Assistance Response & Recovery Team is a coalition of government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and other entities who provide services to people impacted by the recent disasters. By registering with HI-DARRT, you only have to fill out one form to be considered for assistance from several agencies.

Looking for affordable housing?

See for yourself the options that are available.

Hope Services Hawaii is providing financial assistance to assist with rental deposit and rent for those who qualify. Displaced households can go to kokua.alohaliving.com and search for available rental units. Those who want to offer housing can register at the same site.


“Without [HOPE Services], we wouldn’t be where we’re at today...I thank them from the bottom of my heart”
