The Way Out – Homelessness Retreat
Wednesday, March 4, 2020. 8:00 am – 1:00 pm
Hawaii Pacific University, 1 Aloha Tower Drive
On any given night in Hawaii, there are thousands of individuals who are homeless. They are men, women and children. They are single and married. They are from every ethnic group, they come from a wide variety of economic and social backgrounds, and every one of their stories is unique. In short, they are just like us.
The Way Out is The Salvation Army's promise to double our impact on homelessness. We invite you to join us in finding a Way Out for those in need by attending this retreat. On this day, you will learn about existing services, directions and initatives taking place in the community as well as issues and obstacles that we face.
