A 600% Increase

When COVID-19 hit our shores, the number of calls to Aloha United Way 211 increased by 600 percent.

These are Hawaii families and individuals who desperately need your help. Rent remains the top concern, with health care and employment/income close behind.

As of early September, 606 households have been saved from eviction, allowing 1,056 adults and 968 children to keep a roof over their heads and not forced to live on the streets.
