PREVENTION & DIVERSION
Family Promise of Hawai’i offers a variety of supportive services for families with children who are experiencing crisis and are at-risk of becoming homeless. This includes families who are facing eviction, staying with relatives or couch surfing. In many cases, Family Promise has the ability to provide rental assistance, mediation with landlords and other services to help enrolled families prevent the loss of their home. Participating families also have access to our Honolulu Day Center, where they can meet with a case manager, search for housing or employment, shower, do laundry and utilize kitchen facilities, including access to a fully stocked food pantry. The Diversion program was created as a preventative solution for families in crisis who need help accessing stable housing. The goal of the program is to prevent the need for emergency shelter for as many families as possible, reducing the stress and financial expense of homelessness on both the families and their local community.
