Last night, our Outreach Team collaborated with the Hawaii Department of Transportation and the Department of Law Enforcement to address homelessness in the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport area.Our specialists met with individuals to assess their unique situations and connect them with appropriate resources. These ranged from securing shelter to arranging transportation back to their home states through our Relocation Program.Follow-up appointments were scheduled for later this week to ensure continuity of care and to help individuals access the services they need.This important work embodies our commitment to compassionate, personalized solutions.
