Ho'omana's primary focus is using the Thrift Store as a "training site" for individuals in job-transferable skills that can be applied to future employment, life skills, financial literacy, and personal growth and development.
We also do outreach to the houseless and others in need to provide clothing, bedding, household items, as well as connections to much needed resources like bus pass, ID, Food Stamps, and more...
Serving the Houseless In Our Area
BASIC NEEDS OF HOUSELESS
On March11, 2020 - St Regis Hotel Princeville donate an amazing amount of sheets and towels to our store. We began sorting and handing out sheets and towels to those living outdoors.
St. Regis Hotel Princeville also donated a large amount of toiletries and bags and we were able to put together MANY bags to hand out during a cookout at Kamalani as well as to others in need during food service delivery.
HELPING PROVIDE THE BASIC NEED OF FOOD
As we found our store closed due to flooding, our work did not stop and Rowena took her outreach mobile and began networking with others to get food to the houseless and displaced families.
Rowena is seen here actually grilling the hotdogs served during 1 of 2 cookouts for those living at Kamalani Kai.
