  • U.S.VETS – Barbers Point Donor and Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon

    On September 5th, U.S.VETS – Barber’s Point held a Donor and Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon at the Willows Restaurant in Honolulu, Hawaii. As guests walked through the scenic garden entrance, staff greeted each guest as they proceeded through the doors of the Kapa’akea Room. Everyone enjoyed the acoustic Hawaiian sounds from Na Hoku Hanohano award winner, Kamuela Kahoano. As the formal program began community supporters and fundamental partners were honored and recognized for their vital role in supporting U.S.VETS – Barber’s Point site’s mission during the 2014 fiscal year. Veterans United, Paul L’Ecuyer, Michelle Bradshaw from Argosy University, Dick May representing the Rotary Club of Kapolei, Jade Umi from Star Protection, and Rey Armijo on behalf of the Wal-Mart Foundation, received an honorary glass plaque and were presented with a lei by Chief Operating Officer, Darryl Vincent, and Barber’s Point Executive Director, Dr. Kim Cook. The event’s highlight was the standing ovation that U.S.VETS - Barber’s Point’s success story, Mr. Damien Hanuna, received as he shared his personal journey of success to all who attended. Damien is an example of why we as staff members of U.S.VETS do what we do every day. On behalf of the Barber’s Point staff, we extend our deepest appreciation to all of our honorees and supporters who have made a commitment to join our fight to end homelessness amongst veterans.

  • U.S.VETS is Providing “Housing First” in Hawaii

    Housing First is a program that provides the homeless community the immediate housing, with the case management needed for stable living to follow. On September 4th, 2014, Hawai’i News Now, interviewed 88-year-old Air Force Veteran Thomas Murray V, who was placed in subsidized housing through the Housing First grant in June of 2013. Mr. Murray was one of the first homeless seniors to get a rental through the U.S.VETS Housing First program last year. U.S.VETS Chief Operating Officer, Darryl Vincent, speaks about the philosophy of Housing First and how U.S.VETS is adopting approach in order to address needs of chronically homeless, vulnerable, unsheltered individuals. “We have some in town, some as far out as Waianae and Leeward coast,” explained Vincent. “They’re women, they’re men, they’re young. They’re older.” The Housing First team at U.S.VETS works with Homeless Outreach programs to identify chronically homeless to match them with an apartment, having them pay 30 percent of their income. With this grant we are able to partner with other community agencies including Kalihi Palama Health Care, Waikiki Health, C. Peraro Consulting, Catholic Charities, and Helping Hands Hawaii, to assist the veteran population of the vulnerable members of Hawaii’s homeless community.
