The Queen's Health Systems and Aloha United Way

The Need is Great & We Can’t Do it Alone

Partner with us as we build a more resilient Hawaii. Every dollar counts.

Aloha United Way provides a critical service with our 2-1-1 information and referral hotline that links the community to services and programs. Right now many callers are looking to find food and financial assistance for rent, mortgage payments, utilities, elder and child care, and how to locate health insurance. The call volume met an all-time high at over 1000% increase from last year when the pandemic hit and has leveled off to 600%, creating the need for additional staff and longer hours.

The Top 5 Requests:

  - 33% Housing & Shelter
  - 19.7% Other
  - 15.8% Health Care & COVID-19
  - 10.6% Utilities
  - 7.5% Food

The helpline is supported through AUW’s generous donors. Personal crises do not care what time it is, but AUW is there to help, 15 hours a day, providing a lifeline especially when all other services are closed and refers callers to over 4,000 programs statewide, with on-demand interpreters available for callers who need language assistance.

The need is great and we can’t do it alone. Partner with us as we build a more resilient Hawaii. Every dollar counts.
