IHS AND AFFILIATED PARTNERS ON TRACK TO MEET OR EXCEED FIRST YEAR GOALS IN TWO CITY FUNDED PROGRAMS

Urban Honolulu benefits from continuum of services including Community Assistance Program and Hale Mauliola Housing Navigation Center

News Release from IHS, April 13, 2016

HONOLULU – Two City-administration funded programs have added significant depth and value to homeless services, particularly in urban Honolulu.

Six months after launch, the Community Assistance Program (CAP) has achieved 106% of its goal having moved 53 individuals off the streets and into shelter and housing. The program aimed to serve 50 chronically homeless individuals within one year of operating. The program served individuals and families throughout the urban core Honolulu areas; including Kalihi, Palama, Kapalama, Iwilei, Chinatown, and downtown Honolulu.

Additionally, five months after launching Hale Mauliola, IHS achieved 79% of its goal of moving 130 individuals off the streets and into Hale Mauliola in the first year. With assertive homeless outreach and support from Hawaii Partners in Care and the City administration; IHS has met 92% of its 230 community referral goal having received 192 total referrals to date. Hale Mauliola reached as high as 90% capacity. By March 2016, 51% of homeless moved off the streets originated from urban Honolulu. IHS outreach and case management staff continues to motivate and serve more unsheltered and recently homeless individuals throughout the urban core to consider shelter and housing.

Hale Mauliola guest Clayton Gohier, a 76 year old Waikiki surf instructor and canoe captain for 45 years, reconnected with his wife, Verena Gohier while living at Hale Mauliola. The Gohier’s stated “this community not only ended our homeless situation, it brought us together, restored our health and gave us an opportunity to rebuild our lives. We are most grateful to everyone that has made this possible.”
