IHS, The Institute for Human Services, Inc., is a comprehensive social services agency working to prevent and end homelessness in Hawaii.
IHS's mission is to provide "respite for those who are unsheltered and solutions that transform the lives of homeless and at-risk people," and to provide services for "a community where everyone has a right to, and responsibility for safe, decent, and affordable housing."
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 or are in danger of becoming homeless. The agency operates two facilities in Honolulu: The Sumner Service Center, located at 350 Sumner Street, is capable of housing up to 200 men each night, while the Kaaahi Service Center, located at 546 Kaaahi Street, serves up to 100 single women in addition to 23-27 families, which can include as many as 60 children. The agency strives to be ADA compliant and makes reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities.
