What We Believe
HSI is convinced that by creating more affordable neighborhoods, we can help low-income individuals and families to escape poverty and break the cycle of homelessness. When HSI residents are empowered and become contributing members of society, our entire community benefits.
HSI’s capital funds for neighborhood development come from both private and government grants.
60 percent of HSI’s operating funds come from from tenant rents, and 40 percent from federal, state and city governments. For every dollar HSI receives, 97 cents goes directly to housing and program services.
HSI has provided both short and long-term affordable housing on O‘ahu for more than a quarter century.
From a single shelter in1986, the organization has grown to a network of eight properties with more than seven hundred apartments.
In its early years, HSI specialized in operating homeless shelters that provided supportive social services. Today, it focuses on building neighborhoods that are safe, affordable and permanent so residents can lead more productive, healthy and meaningful lives.
HSI received Pacific Business News’ Cades Schutte Nonprofit Leadership Award in 2011. HSI President Terry Brooks points to customer service and innovative business practices as fundamental reasons for the organization’s success.
HSI Vice-President, Gaye Johnston, was a finalist for Pacific Business News’ Chief Financial Officer 2010 award in the nonprofit category.
