Hope for homelessness

Despite signs that Hawaii is finally willing to open up about our homelessness problem, there are still far too many families in need.

Aleck provides these two examples of groups working to solve family homelessness.

Family Promise. “It’s a loosely faith-based organization that works with homeless families. They provide long term commitment and give people a place to sleep.” [Familypromisehawaii.org], 261-7478
H-5: Hawaii Helping the Hungry Have Hope. “Utu Langi is the man who first walked around the island to raise awareness of this issue,” Aleck says. The group’s “Walk The Talk” event is taking place this week. [H5hawaii.org], 782-9628
