Aaron had been homeless since 2016, much of the time living around Makiki District Park.Life was not easy for him. His belongings were stolen numerous times, and he grew so distrustful of people that he stopped talking altogether — with a few exceptions. 💙 Accepting his mother's support, Aaron worked to maintain a sober lifestyle. He was connected with Jeri (#hele2work Employment Services) who helped him get food and clothing, and connected him with a case manager to replace his vital documents and help him apply for benefits.

With the help of Jeri and his case manager, Aaron recently moved into a place of his own! 🎉🎉To learn more about Hele2Work visit: ihshawaii.org/services/employment-services/ ... See MoreSee Less
