Join us in honoring the legacy of our founder, Reverend Claude DuTeil. Father DuTeil dedicated his life to serving others. This year, we’re dedicating 100 Hours of Service (1HS) to celebrate his 100th birthday.
1HS is a contactless service initiative that can take place in your home, neighborhood, office, or even online. During the 100 hours beginning at 10 am on Thursday, August 27 and lasting until 2 pm on Monday, August 31, 1HS encourages individuals, organizations, families, and communities to show aloha to each other and give back to our community.

Every summer, IHS staff and supporters come together to celebrate the life and legacy of our founder, Reverend Claude DuTeil, who started IHS on his 58th birthday on July 1, 1978.
The celebration has traditionally been a day of service, during which hundreds of people come together to do various service projects at our shelters or service locations. It is a time when we all give back together and remember our founder and the movement he started to reach out to homeless individuals and offer them dignity and hope for a brighter future.
This year would have been Father DuTeil’s 100th birthday and in his honor, we are extending Founder’s Day to an entire weekend. 100 hours during which IHS staff, supporters and concerned community members will come together to celebrate community, service, and the resiliency of our island’s spirit.
With social distancing measures still in place, we are encouraging people to do acts of service in their own communities – whether virtual or in-person – and to share them through social media.
