Homeless Talk From The Expert

Connie Mitchell of IHS

Residents concerned about the increasing homeless population in Windward Oahu have a chance to learn more about what groups like Institute for Human Services are doing to help.

IHS executive director Connie Mitchell will speak from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Friday at Emmanuel Church in Kailua, discussing the organization, its goals, its collaborations with government, and programs in other parts of the state.

The free presentation will be followed by a Q&A session and “talk story” coffee hour, where attendees can mingle with Mitchell and other guests.

The church invited Mitchell to serve as a follow-up to Colin Kippen and Jun Yang’s talk last May about how the state and city are addressing homelessness.

The church is located at 780 Keolu Drive. For more information, call 262-4548 or visit emmanuelkailua.com.
