We often characterize Hawaii as Paradise... but now a bigger question may be Paradise for whom? That emerged as part of the conversation we had earlier this week with state homelessness coordinator, Colin Kippen. At issue was the recently announced plan from IHS to create a PR campaign to keep would-be mainland homeless folks from coming to Hawaii... and an additional plan to help about 120 homeless folks to return to their home state. Connie Mitchell, Executive Director of HIS, joined the show to tell us more about their initiatives.
