Local News

More help is on the way for Hawaii’s homeless.

HomeAid Hawaii announced it will be helping fund three new projects which will help youth outreach. The next step shelter and Tutu Bert’s house, which helps homeless patients recently discharged from the hospital.

“Were trying to do our part, and show that in fact private sector can react much more quickly than the government can. It’s not going to solve homelessness by any stretch? But we’re doing our part and want to show others and encourage other groups to try to take on something like this also,” said HomeAid Hawaii chairman David Striph.

HomeAid chapters have finished more than 400 projects across the nation providing more than $200 million in needed funding.
