Friendly people keep the Kaneohe Community Garden growing.
Homelessness: We received a letter from the state explaining the methods used in its 2016 homeless count on the Windward side. The state involved multiple community-serving agencies as well as volunteers in the count, which spanned a five-day period in late January after numerous training events. Agency employees focused on the areas and people they serve, and did much of the survey work. The letter was a response to concerns raised at our July meeting about low numbers of homeless being counted on the Windward side and about the adequacy of documentation during the count. Our homelessness committee will continue to work on the issue. The committee’s members are Mahealani Cypher, Deborah Collins and Bill Sager.
