On April 1, 2019, Partners in Care and Bridging the Gap organized a rally at the Hawai’i State Capitol to advocate for sustained annual commitments by the Legislature toward truly affordable housing and core homeless services. Over one hundred individuals and ninety organizations signed on a joint letter in support of:
- Sustained annual commitments for truly affordable housing, including targeted housing for the chronically homeless.
- Sustained annual commitments for core homelessness services that work (such as Housing First) to ensure their long-term viability and success; and
- Changes to mental health laws, ensuring that people incapacitated by mental illness and suffering on the streets are connected with the help they need.
