Review for IHS, THE INSTITUTE FOR HUMAN SERVICES, INC, Honolulu, HI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In my role as the adviser for a high school club that does community service projects, I have participated (along with the students) in several volunteer workdays at IHS over the past 5-6 years: sorting donated clothes & household items, cleaning, and serving meals. As the primary homeless shelter in urban Honolulu, IHS provides a critical service to the city's homeless population. As well as providing bed space in their two shelters (one for men & one for women/families), they provide case management and various types of services to help people get back on their feet. I love their recent initiative of growing vegetables & fruit trees in all the available bits of land around the edge of the shelter!

Role:  Volunteer & Volunteered in several capacities.
