As part of the Department of Veterans Affairs plan to expand the Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program, more than $2.1 million is being given to Catholic Charities Hawaii and the United States Veterans Initiative.
The Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program supports VA's efforts to prevent at-risk veterans from becoming homeless and rapidly re-house those who have recently fallen into homelessness.
The assistance is expected to benefit 566 homeless and at-risk veteran households across the state.
Catholic Charities Hawaii is getting $1,108,224.
United States Veterans Initiative will be receiving $1,017,000.
Sources tell KHON2 that state Department of Health Director Loretta Fuddy died in a plane crash off Molokai.
Loretta Fuddy devoted 30 years to the health and human services industry.
There's a grinch at the Hawaii State Veteran's Cemetery. At least, that's what those who have loved ones buried there are saying. They've been told their holiday decorations at gravesites will have to come down.
