Hale Kipa, also known as Youth Outreach (YO), serves as a safe haven for homeless youths, offering medical care, social services and non-judgmental support along with food, hot shower, and clothing. Located in Waikiki, the agency serves at-risk homeless youth five days a week - Monday through Friday.
Help us prepare delicious meals.
St. Mark’s provides hot meals for Youth Outreach every Friday after school.
If you would like to help prepare and cook the meals, volunteers gather on Thursday evenings at 5:30 pm for Evening Prayer and cooking, as well as on Fridays at various times. A sign-up sheet is in the back of the church for those who would like to help with food shopping.
Want to donate clothing?
We are collecting gently used or new clothing for children and youth inclusive of ages 7-22.
What about hygiene products?
Yes, these are very useful too. Toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, soap, conditioner, body lotion, and anything else a teenager might want are helpful.
We need snacks!
We need packages of granola bars, fruit cups, pudding cups, snack bags of chips, and anything else young people might like for a snack. Individually wrapped items are the best.
Want to make a financial donation?
