Review for IHS, The Institute For Human Services, Inc, Honolulu, HI, USA
I feel very fortunate in how things have turned out in my life. I look around and see the homeless population in Hawaii grow every day. The Institute for Human Resources attacks this problem head one and with compassion. I've been to their shelters. I've seen how much they do with the little they have. It's not much, but I organize an event every five years or so to bring to light what we can do together to give back to the community. The latest event in 2010 was called "Towels and Toiletries". It is a hard economy for everyone, but my associates at work were able to collect over a dozen boxes of well needed items on IHS's wish list. Items we often take for granted. The event was fun, and it felt good giving. I chose the Institute for Human Resources as my charity of choice because their help to those in Hawaii that are not as fortunate as me is tangible. It is the one charity dedicated to helping homeless men, women, many children, and families, keep their hope alive.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I wish IHS was bigger, had more backing. The homeless situation in Hawaii is just to big for their organization's resources and size.
