The Gift of Shelter

In 2020 the Bridging the Gap Point-In-Time survey counted 132 homeless children on our island. Neighborhood Place of Puna is here to help change that. We know that children need a safe, loving environment to grow, but that’s not possible when our local families are forced into homelessness. 

Please take the pledge today to help us end family homelessness by supporting our shelter. Hale ‘Iki shelter is the only family shelter in Puna, where rates of poverty on Big Island are some of the highest. By taking the pledge you help us set our fundraising goals this season. If you would like to help even more as a peer-to-peer fundraiser, please message us at 

Take the pledge!

While we encourage everyone to shop local through programs like pop-up makeke, we know that some folks will still be using Amazon for holiday purchases. If you are one of those people please add us to your smile account, it’s free and it benefits our agency.
