Through previous experience working with individuals experiencing houselessness, it is abundantly clear that our community members are in need of more comprehensive connection to services. Unite Us offers a solution which brings health equity to our most disenfranchised communities.
I grew up in a culture where my ‘ohana (family) is very important, and everyone you come into contact with is your ‘ohana because we all come from the same place. We may not walk the same path or have the same journey, but it’s important that we treat each other as if we’re a family, with respect, love, and with the idea that we need to work together to make things better. And the work that I do at Unite Us allows me the opportunity to integrate my culture with my work and everyone I work with.
My work at Unite Us matters because I am part of building something bigger with the core values of lokahi (unity), working together as a community to malama (take care of and protect) those who are vulnerable in our community. Because Hawai’i is my home, I am fully committed to link arms with my community with a shared love for the people and the land. We together share a vision to see generational transformation in our communities.
Although I am a transplant to Oahu, this is my home and I have a vested interest in our community. Knowing subtleties like geography, names, pronunciation, culture, etc. makes such a difference when forming lasting relationships with our partners. We all want to improve the state of Hawaii so knowing we are all in this together is very powerful.
