Community Assistance Center

296 N. Vineyard Boulevard, Honolulu, Hawaii 96817


Serving local families in most need


The Community Assistance Center helps to meet the emergency material and financial needs of the people of Oahu.

Food / Clothes

Emergency food bags are provided to families and individuals who live in Honolulu and surrounding communities. Food bags last approximately three days. Since much of the food we give out requires preparation, homeless individuals or families are encouraged to seek feeding programs available at the Institute of Human Services or the River of Life Mission.

Clothes vouchers, for use at any Salvation Army Thrift Store, are also available. These can be used to purchase clothes for work, school, or for a change of clothes if you are homeless with no other resources.

Financial Assistance

Financial assistance can be provided for emergency health and housing needs only. Applicants must be able to show that an emergency exists, that they have done all they can to resolve the problem on their own, and that they will be able to be financially self-sufficient in the future.

Budget and Nutritional Counseling - "Hana Pono`i - Striving Towards Self-Sufficiency" Seminar

Budgeting Class - The "Hana Pono`i - Striving Towards Self-Sufficiency" seminar is a must for all people who are in need of basic nutrition and budget counseling. Budgeting strategies, menu planning, and goal setting are some of the many topics covered in this simple, but useful three-hour course. Sessions are held at least twice a week.

If you'd like to donate food items (canned goods, bottled water or drinks, packaged foods, etc.) directly to our Family Services Office, please donate them to 296 N. Vineyard Boulevard, Honolulu, HI 96817.

If you would like to coordinate a food drive with your company or organization, please contact our Development Team at 808.440.1834 or email

"My prayers were answered"

"I couldn't work and I fell behind on my rent. We moved to six places in the last year and were homeless for two months. Being a business owner, I didn't think that I would be in the position to need anyone's help." Isabella called the Family Services Office and was able to get a rent check in less than a week. "I'm so thankful. Not being able to work because of my back had set us back so much. The Salvation Army is a blessing to single moms like me."
