The Path Forward

Hawaii’s homeless population is made up of different types of individuals with differing needs, and include recently aged out foster children, “working poor”, veterans, and persons suffering substance abuse and mental illness. Addressing the various challenges that may cause a person to be houseless requires both multi-pronged approaches and our commitment as a State to help support meaningful changes in the lives of those who need our collective Aloha.

As chair of the Honolulu City Council in 2019, Ikaika worked with the lieutenant governor to initiate the tiny-home kauhale (village) concept. Before 2019, the statenstruggled to implement this model. Ikaika stepped up to drive this first kauhale project, Hui Mahi‘ai ‘Aina, which opened in 2019 at Waimanalo and continues to thrive today.Kama‘oku Kalaeloa, which is based on this same concept, opened in November 2021. Another initiative is being planned in West Oahu.

The kauhale concept has proven to be successful. As Lieutenant Governor, Ikaika will build more kauhale across Hawaii, in appropriate locations, community by community.

Once housing is established providing core stability, social services can be extended tohelp further recovery and transition into more permanent housing options.
