Last Thursday the Institute for Human Services (IHS) won the *contract to operate the Hale Mauliola transitional modular housing center at Sand Island, which was announced by Mayor Kirk Caldwell. Hale Mauliola will feature 63 housing units made out of “modified shipping containers” and will be able to house up to 39 individuals and 24 couples. The city awarded the $850,000 contract to IHS, which is the largest homeless shelter operator in Hawaii, to manage the transitional housing facility on Sand Island. IHS will handle case management and provide support services along with its partner agency Helping Hands Hawaii.
Bids for a separate contract to build the facility will be accepted until July 8, but the Honolulu Department of Facility Management will start laying the groundwork for the construction at the Sand Island site.
*IHS was also awarded another $500,000 contract to run the city’s Community Assistance Program, an initiative that brings together four agencies to address homelessness in the Kalihi, Palama, Kapalama, Iwilei and downtown/Chinatown areas. Per this contract, IHS will work with Mental Health Kokua to help the mentally ill.
