Ending Child and Family Homelessness in Hawaii County
Every night, families are forced to sleep in cars, on streets, or camp illegally because there are not enough emergency shelter beds in Hawaii County. Not only does this create health and safety risks for families and children, it makes it harder for families to transition out of homelessness.
Housing is the only way to end homelessness. Homelessness is not a healthy or desirable lifestyle. The quicker families move out of homelessness the more likely they are to remain housed.
Family Promise Churches leverage existing resources: buildings, volunteers, vision, and hospitality to shelter up to four families for a single week each quarter. These Churches provide the essential shelter and stability that homeless families need in order transition into more stable housing and livelihoods.
