  • Overview


    The Aloha Inn is a resident managed transitional housing program for 66 homeless adults. We work to place every resident in appropriate housing as quickly as possible. We provide a number of services designed to assist people in finding and maintaining permanent housing. Residents are required to save money every week for permanent housing, contribute to the daily operations of the program, meet regularly with our housing counselor, and pay a nominal weekly rent. In addition, some residents are required to attend drug and alcohol recovery meetings and maintain an ongoing relationship with a mental health provider. Our screening criteria are intentionally low-barrier in regards to criminal history, past evictions and landlord issues, and credit history. As a result many of our residents have multiple barriers to finding permanent housing.
