Honolulu Hale illuminated purple for Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week

HONOLULU -- Mayor Kirk Caldwell has requested that Honolulu Hale be illuminated purple beginning tonight until the morning of Sunday, November 22, in recognition of Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week.

Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is an annual program where people come together across the country to draw attention to the problems of hunger and homelessness. Participating groups spend the week holding a series of educational, service, fundraising, and advocacy events.

"During times of crisis, it is more important than ever to look after the most vulnerable in our community," said Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell. "I applaud all of our government and community partners for their continued dedication to ensure that every effort is taken to provide outreach to those who are suffering with the burden of homelessness during this pandemic."

The State, Counties, Bridging the Gap (neighbor island Continuum of Care), and Partners in Care (Oʻahu Continuum of Care) are holding a statewide Homeless Awareness Virtual Conference on November 18th and 19th, with over 760 participants already registered to participate. This conference is open to the public.

"During this pandemic, our homeless services system has forged new partnerships and creative strategies to assist those who are experiencing homelessness. This conference is an opportunity to listen and learn from one another, and to better engage the community at-large," observed Marc Alexander, executive director of the Honolulu Mayor's Office of Housing.
