How can we help homeless individuals in our society?

Steve Alm, Prosecuting Attorney for the City & County of Honolulu, joins producer/host Coralie Chun Matayoshi to discuss:

  • Why Hawaii has the highest rate of homeless individuals per capita in the nation (12,000 to 15,000 people)
  • Programs that can help break the cycle of arrest and hospitalization
  • Current laws in effect that help maintain health and safety in public places like sidewalks, parks and beaches, and
  • How to get treatment for chronically homeless individuals with mental health issues.
