Hawaii H.O.M.E. Project — Homeless Outreach & Medical Education


Hawaii H.O.M.E. Project is a John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) student-run free clinic staffed by volunteers.
The mission of the Hawaii H.O.M.E. Project is to improve quality and access to health care for Hawaii's homeless, while increasing student and physician awareness and understanding of the homeless and their healthcare needs. The project was founded in August of 2005 and currently provides free medical services to homeless individuals through four student-run clinics per week at the Pai'olu Kaiaulu shelter in Waianae, the Onemalu and Onelauena shelters in Kalaeloa, First United Methodist Church, Institute for Human Services, St. Mary's Church and Kaka'ako Waterfront Park. In addition to these clinics, we also utilize our mobile health van for outreach to other unsheltered homeless populations on Oahu.
