Located in the heart of the Leeward Coast, the U.S.VETS—Wai’anae Civic Center is the only U.S.VETS site in the nation that provides services to both veteran and civilian families. In 2007, the State of Hawaii requested U.S.VETS to extend their program to include the civilian homeless population with shelter services, providing comprehensive care to nearly 200 men, women and children each day.

When medical complications put financial hardship on Astrilita and Fermin, the couple were forced out of their home and to the streets. “I was scared of being housed again because we had struggled so much before,” explains Astrilita, “ but I am confident now that we will be able to keep our home from the things we learned here. We are so appreciative of the staff at U.S.VETS for their support and for teaching me not to be afraid.”
