Hawaii homelessness coordinator meets with public

HONOLULU (AP) - The public is invited to a community meeting with Hawaii's homelessness coordinator.

Marc Alexander is a former Vicar General for the Catholic Diocese of Honolulu and is now leading the state's homeless initiative.

The Hawaii House of Representatives said in a news release the Wednesday night meeting at St. Clement Church in Honolulu is to focus on Gov. Neil Abercrombie's philosophy toward addressing the homeless problem and the state's 90-day plan on the issue.

The meeting is to also provide ways the public along with faith-based and charitable organizations can be part of efforts to eliminate homelessness.

The meeting is hosted by the church and Rep. Della Au Belatti.
