Founded in 1982, IHS is committed to serving people who are homeless in our community, providing the basic human needs of food, clothing and shelter in an environment of compassion, fairness and dignity. We seek to significantly improve the lives of our guests by providing supportive services, which are professional, equitable and transformative. IHS remains the only 24-hour walk-in, emergency shelter on Oahu and continues to provide a full range of services to men, women and families with children who are homeless. The agency operates two facilities in Honolulu, one for men at 350 Sumner Street, capable of serving up to 240 men each night and the other, for women and families, at 546 Ka`aahi Street, serving up to 60 single women and 23 families with as many as 60 children daily.
