Review for IHS, THE INSTITUTE FOR HUMAN SERVICES, INC, Honolulu, HI, USA
For those unaware of the situation here in Hawai`i homelessness has grown to a problem of epic proportions.
The reason we donate to the Institute for Human Services here in Honolulu is that they are not a "warehouse" for the homeless. Rather, in addition to providing shelter they provide services that help their guests to get back on their feet and into permanent housing. The Institute also helps persons who are in danger of becoming homeless. Children receive school supplies and have a place in the center where they can do homework.
The center also has grows vegetables to serve to its guests, becoming a part of the green movement here in the Islands. The programs at IHS not only provide sustenance for their guests, they also provide a model for good citizenship.
