Be a part of the solution to end and prevent homelessness in Hawaii

Mahalo for your interest in Volunteering at IHS. 

We value and appreciate the individual volunteers, community organizations, churches, and businesses who donate their time and resources to our organization every day.  It is through your Kokua that we make a difference in the lives of Oahu's citizens who are homeless.

Please see below for more detailed information about our volunteer program.  We want to provide you with an opportunity to partner with the staff at IHS, so you’ll have a meaningful experience while meeting the needs of our guests and clients.  Your efforts will make a huge impact on those less fortunate in our community.

You can also go directly to complete a Volunteer Application.

If you have any questions about volunteering, the application process, or for groups of 10 or more, please contact our volunteer manager at or call 808-447-2810 to discuss options, dates and details.
