In January 2017, IHS launched Hawaii's first street medicine homeless outreach team in decades to help a group of chronic homeless individuals suffering from mental illnesses with gaining access to new treatment medication and housing, ending their homelessness many years later.
The team has faced numerous system barriers and challenges, yet they have not given up on the many individuals they continue to engage. They are dependable, hard working and deserve our support and gratitude to persevere. We ask for your support to continue to help people like Donna find happiness after 19 years of being chronically homeless in Honolulu with mental illness.
Special Mahalo to the crew of Hawaii News Now for capturing the miracles and transformation being made.
