How OHANA Helps Our Community?
Hear from some of the individuals we have served
"I am grateful for all that Ohana did for me and my children. The food we were given, was a lot. I must say, knowing or hearing about OSH has been nothing but a blessing. God bless Ohana. You all are highly appreciated.
Thanks a million.
"OSH helped me by providing the support I needed to be able to live on my own and take care of my kids. I’m thankful for my time there."
"Ohana Safe Haven has played a major role in my success. My son and I were experiencing homelessness, living with friends and family. Being homeless was very hard on us because I felt like I was failing as a mother. One day, I was given this number and Ohana extended beneficial help to my son and I. My son and I obtained housing, food, clothing, and moral support. I don’t know where I would be without the their help."
