California Homeless Man Gets Flown to Live With Family in Hawaii
By News Release @ 7:31 PM :: 4160 Views :: Homelessness

Meet Gabriel.

From Vacaville, CA Police Department, October 20, 2016

Gabriel has been homeless in Vacaville for quite some time.

Recently the Police Department's Community Response Unit (CRU) began working with Gabriel to try to reunify him with his family.

CRU made contact with Gabriel's family in Hawaii, who very much wanted Gabriel home.

Through a generous grant from the Brendan-Mann Foundation we were able to arrange for Gabriel to get back home to his family in Hawaii at no cost to the taxpayers of Vacaville.

In Hawaii, he has a place to live and a job working at the family coffee farm.

Gabriel is seen here with CRU Sergeant David Kellis, this morning, as he prepares to board his flight home.

Good luck Gabriel, and Aloha!
