The Reality of Homelessness in Hawai’i
On every island in Hawaiʻi families are sleeping in tents on the beaches, tucked away in the lava, and camped in public parks. Parents experiencing homelessness work full time jobs while children do their homework by flashlight – in cars parked in Hawaii’s towns and cities. Many of our elderly have to decide between medication or food at the grocery store, and the mentally ill of our state are left with little choice but to sleep outside. Homelessness in Hawaii is a growing epidemic, and these statistics are heartbreaking.
How we are helping
HOPE Services offers Street Outreach, Emergency Shelter, Transitional and Permanent Supportive Housing, Rapid Rehousing, Rental Assistance, Disaster Relief Services, and more to those experiencing homelessness, and those in imminent danger of becoming homeless.
