Connie Mitchell, from the Institute of Human Services, spoke on homeless issues in and around Oahu. They are the oldest, largest, and most comprehensive human services agency focused exclusively on ending and preventing homelessness in Hawaii! 

"With a growing and changing homeless population, we must continue to innovate and adapt to best serve our clients’ needs."

IHS’ approach to homelessness balances compassion with fostering kuleana, and competence with evidence-based practices in order to spur thoughtful reflection and assertive action. Their team of 156 employees serve the entire homeless community from veterans to seniors, the chronically homeless to transgender persons. IHS serves Hawaii’s most vulnerable individuals with respect, taking the time to listen to their stories and offer tailored solutions. Beyond food and shelter, IHS offers a wide variety of supportive services that allow individuals to reconnect, heal and succeed. Mahalo, Connie!
