Mahalo, everyone! 
We had a great time last night celebrating 20 years of service
and it was all because of you!

Love. Peace. Compassion.  That is the true meaning of Aloha. These virtues are the embodiment of our work at the Harry Tompson Center, where we offer dignity and support to individuals struggling with homelessness. For more information about our mission and services, visit
