About 2nd Thursday

2nd Thursday is a monthly meeting of organizations providing health and human services to the homeless community on the Wai`anae Coast. Meetings are held at 11:30am each second Thursday of the month at the Ulu Ke Kukui Dining Facility. Our objectives are the following:

 Network and share information on services available for Wai`anae Coast residents and residents of Wai`anae Coast emergency and transitional shelters.

 Develop a continuum of services for people accessing shelter services and other help by coordinating and collaborating among ourselves.

 Discuss policy issues affecting health and human services on the Wai`anae Coast with an emphasis on housing and shelter issues.
