There are an estimated 476 homeless children on the Big Island. 33% of homeless individuals in Hawai’i are children in families.
Neighborhood Place of Puna is dedicated to changing that. Children need a safe, loving environment to grow, but that’s not possible when our local families are forced into homelessness. Hale ‘Iki shelter is the only family shelter in Puna, where rates of poverty on Big Island are some of the highest. Kids in stable housing will have better outcomes later in life.
Give the Gift of Shelter today to make a difference in a family’s life. Your tax-deductible donation helps us end family homelessness in Hawai’i and helps local families get back on their feet.
