Clinic for the homeless in Kane'ohe reopens after two month closure



A clinic for the homeless in Windward Oahu re-opened Monday, after closing more than two months ago because of COVID-19. "It's been a real challenge, I think the staff is excited. The community is excited and we're happy to be back on the Windward side, serving these people out here," Lilian DeCosta, RN, H4 Homeless Healthcare Facility clinical director, said ... State House Representative Lisa Kitagawa co-founded the clinic, she reports since the center opened last August, there's been about 1,000 visits. Most of the visits were for social services. "We've seen really good numbers of people serviced throughout the windward side. It's really showing a positive result right now," Kitagawa said.

Windward Menu Website created by Rep. Kitagawa and Rep. Matayoshi



Representative Matayoshi and I have created a website ( www.WindwardMenu.com ) called Windward Menu in an attempt to consolidate all Windward restaurant information to make it easier for residents to continue to eat at and support our local restaurants. Our initial goal was to help the restaurants in our community survive the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the COVID-19 pandemic has evolved, so have the needs of our community. Because of that, we have expanded our website to include resources for Windward Oahu residents, as well as Windward farm produce options. Our website will continue to evolve to provide the most helpful information to our community, so I encourage you to check the website regularly.

We have also created numerous informational flyers to provide our community with up-to-date information on a variety of topics related to COVID-19. These flyers are available under the "Windward Resources" tab on our website.

MidWeek: Community, State Programs Abound for Kupuna

Recently, I had the opportunity to have breakfast and engage in conversation with many seniors at the KEY Project Kūpuna Breakfast in Kahalu'u. This breakfast, which is part of its Kūpuna Program, is one of the many wonderful activities that the KEY Project sponsors to bring together and support our Windward communities. I enjoyed sharing stories with the kūpuna that were there, and seeing how active and engaged they are. The free Kūpuna Breakfast, which happens every Wednesday and Friday morning, provides seniors with a freshly prepared meal and an opportunity for fellowship. This Program also offers seniors with classes, such as ukulele, arts and crafts, and exercise, as well as field trips. The Kūpuna Program is free and open to seniors ages 50 and over.

MidWeek: Kane'ohe Joint Outreach Center Starts Out Strong

As I drive through Kāneʻohe and see the many homeless individuals that are living on the streets, I think back to a time when our community didn't have concerns with homelessness. I remember at 14, going out one evening with my church youth group, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in hand, hoping to feed and help the homeless. We walked along Kamehameha Highway and could not find one individual who was in need. When we finally found a man who was rummaging through a trash can near Safeway, he smiled and declined our sandwiches and help. As a teenager who wanted to make a positive difference in our community, I was disappointed that I didn't help anyone that evening. Now, twenty-five years later, Kāneʻohe has seen an increase in homelessness and there are never enough sandwiches to go around. The needs are greater and homelessness is compounded by drug addiction and mental illness. (to read the full article, click here )

Community Joins Together to Open Kane'ohe JOC



If you ask anyone in our community what their concerns are about Windward O'ahu, many will mention the fast-growing homeless population in our neighborhoods. Data from the Institute for Human Services (IHS) indicates that there is a 12% increase in the number of unsheltered individuals in 2019, and that Windward O'ahu has the second highest number of unsheltered individuals of all Oʻahu regions. As your legislators and fellow Kāneʻohe residents, State Senator Jarrett Keohokalole, Representative Scot Matayoshi, and I, share your concerns about the growing homelessness issue. In response, we have partnered with the Hawaiʻi Homeless Healthcare Hui (H4) to create the Kane'ohe Joint Outreach Center (JOC) to help combat and alleviate this issue.

Hawaii News Now: Kaneohe Joint Outreach Center



HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - An urgent care clinic that caters to the homeless is in the works for Kaneohe. The clinic is designed to save money by preventing emergencies ― and more serious illness. Patients can walk-in and be seen by a doctor, even if they don’t have any money. The clinic will be housed in the Kaneohe Civic Center, next door to the police station. It would be Oahu's second Joint Outreach Center. The first, in Chinatown, has treated hundreds of patients since opening in mid-April of last year. While the Kaneohe clinic will be open to the public, its mission is to help the homeless ― many of whom live right outside the door. "We've seen over the years the increase of the homeless population here in Kaneohe," said state Rep. Lisa Kitagawa, whose district includes Kaneohe.

MidWeek: Remembering to Cherish Our Kane'ohe Anew

Having grown up in Kāneʻohe my entire life, I thought I knew Kane'ohe well. However, I have come to realize this past year how much of Kane'ohe I have taken for granted or overlooked. Sometimes we forget to appreciate what we have around us when we are blessed daily. We are only reminded when someone living in urban Honolulu, or someone who has moved away, says, "Wow, you live Kane'ohe? You so lucky." Although I’m reminded daily by the panoramic view of the Ko'olau Mountain Range from my backyard and by the breathtaking view of Kāneʻohe Bay as I make my way home from work through the tunnels, I sometimes take for granted this special place that we call home.

MidWeek: Get Involved In Community For Volunteer Month

April is National Volunteer Month, when we celebrate and show appreciation for the work that volunteers do year-round. Many of us have volunteered before – whether it’s helping with a local non-profit organization, serving at church, volunteering at school or sports activities, or helping a neighbor in need. Volunteering not only helps the community, but can also have a positive impact on your life. It can improve your health emotionally, physically, socially, spiritually, and in other positive ways, such as build community, create friendships and connections, improve self-esteem, and add more meaning to life.
