At IHS, The Institute for Human Services, we know that one size does not fit all and identify housing options that best serves an individual's need. We offer rent assistance, security and utility deposit money, past-due rent and social services. We conduct housing inspections, help furnish apartments, provide household goods, offer budgeting assistance and work with landlords and property management companies.
Permanent supportive housing programs provide rental subsidies coupled with long-term case management to chronically homeless individuals and families with disabilities. Options include: Shelter Plus Care and Housing first. The "housing first" approach of moving people expeditiously into shelters or transitional housing without barriers has reduced impact on public safety, health care and human services systems.

Short-term financial assistance helps at-risk individuals from losing housing and provides rapid rehousing for those who have just become homeless. Subsidy Programs include: Homeless Prevention, Rapid Re-Housing, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Clean & Sober Transitions and more.
NEW in response to COVID-19: Rent and utility subsidies are available for Oahu residents whose income has been impacted by the pandemic.
