Today on Helping Hand we wrap up three weeks of covering Hawaii’s homeless crisis, the most severe per capita in the US. You can hear our previous two segments archived online with IHS: the Institute for Human Services and Mental Health Kokua. HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence concludes the series wtih Alea Bridge, a nonprofit focused on outreach to the homeless and at-risk populations in central Oahu. Phil Acosta is the Executive Director of Alea Bridge. 

Helping Hand is a weekly feature airing statewide on HPR1 stations each Friday as part of our afternoon drive broadcast of All Things Considered, and then appearing online here, where all of our Helping Hand segments and resources are archived online. Every week, Helping Hand puts the spotlight on an organization, topic or event that offers assistance to people with disabilities and those among the most vulnerable.
