THE SHELTER

Through the years

Dear friends of The Shelter,

We thank you for joining us in celebration of the first full year of THE SHELTER. Since the first family moved in on December 8, 2018, we have had over 26 families gain the benefit of the peaceful dome homes in Kahalu’u. Several moms are now gainfully employed fulltime and 10 moms have transitioned into permanent housing!

Today THE SHELTER is actively dedicated to being PART OF THE SOLUTION to end homelessness in Hawaii for single mothers and their children. We know that if we’re going to fulfill this vision, it’s going to take the effective partnership of the government, the community, the corporate world, the non-profit organizations and the faith-based ohana to come together to support our friends in need.

THE SHELTER means HOPE for their future!
Let’s all be PART OF THE SOLUTION!
