What We Do

Basic Needs



Homelessness exists even in paradise. Many of Hawaii’s homeless find themselves around the islands’ beaches, parks and other places where they can find refuge. The Salvation Army provides assistance to families who are in this daunting situation. We provide hot meals through our soup kitchens, deliver food bags, clothing, and where appropriate -- health, physical and substance abuse counseling.
