When U.S. Vets opened a local chapter in Hawaiʻi, it was the only local organization to support homeless veterans specifically. Seventeen years later, it continues to serve those who’ve served their nation by providing housing, employment and mental health services.
Funds flowing through Aloha United Way have helped U.S. Vets to create programs to help our island communities but AUW has also enabled “us to partner with other agencies that offer services to augment what we’re doing already,” said COO Darryl Vincent. “It’s been a great partnership throughout the years.”
“We couldn’t do the work that we’re doing without AUW contributing to our organization and helping to solve veteran homelessness,” he continued. “Now more than ever, it’s our turn to partner together to ensure that everyone is staying as safe as possible.”
