*Homeless Count Survey Training in Kahalu’u-
this WEDS, Jan/18/2017
JISSO CENTER IN KAHALUU
47-451 HUI AEKO PLACE (on Circle across from Ahuimau Elementary School)
The Training is to do the Official HUD government 1+ page Survey of our Homeless/Houseless and will help us get Funding and Services for Windward (and Oahu). The Survey takes place from Mon Jan23-Fri Jan 27th, so if you even have 3 hours to spare during that week- that is a help. As many of you know, we also have many Hidden Homeless and Working People/Families who are Homeless in tents and cars who also need to be counted and get services.
Kaneohe-Kahalu’u is Region #4 Lower Windward (Ko’olauLoa, Waikane, Waihole is Region #6 Upper Windward)

The lack of Survey Volunteers in the last years is a Big Reason that Windward has not gotten the help for our Homeless :see> http://www.staradvertiser.com/2016/01/31/hawaii-news/homeless-count-a-lack-of-volunteers-for-an-annual-census-could-threaten-the-states-bid-for-federal-dollars/
*Also need Volunteer Organizations needed to make & donate Small Gifts Bags for homeless/houseless who do survey. Typically: plastic bags from newspapers filled with: small samples: shampoo, soap, toothbrush and a granola bar, etc.
