Hawaii for Hawaii 2019

IHS and Hawaii News Now are proud to present the fourth annual Hawaii for Hawaii live benefit concert & telethon. Held on the Great Lawn of the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort, festivities will include:

  • cocktail reception
  • gourmet dinner
  • live entertainment & interviews 
  • fireworks show 
  • complimentary parking 

For the past 40 years, IHS has continued to be Hawaii's safety net for any person who is in crisis and in need of shelter, support services and housing. Through the help of the private sector, we have advocated for and developed programs, policies and facilities that have successfully ended homelessness for thousands in Hawaii. Still, there's a large population of chronic homeless people with mental illnesses and substance dependencies, and homeless families with children who remain on our streets and in emergency shelters across the State. 

In 2018, IHS launched its Prescribing Hope campaign to solve chronic and family homelessness in Hawaii in 5 years. By 2023, we envision a community where:

  • Mentally ill homeless will have better access to medication and treatment programs;
  • Hospitals will see a reduction in chronic homeless clients over-utilizing emergency services and costing taxpayers millions in unnecessary health costs;
  • Substance dependent homeless individuals will have better access to services and treatment; and
  • There will be no families with children remaining on the streets.

Your sponsorship is an investment in solutions that work. It will provide hope to those who have none, but who deserve every opportunity to become healthy, contributing members of our local community. Please help us solve homelessness together.
