Adapted from the Oversight Coordinator Monthly Reports for December 15th, 2022:
GHH leadership met with Hawaii Correctional System Oversight Commission Chair Mark Patterson, Commission Member Theodore Sakai, and Oversight Coordinator Christin Johnson on October 12th, 2022, to discuss concerns regarding justice-involved homeless individuals, specifically within the jail and prison system. Since 2004, the Hawai`i Island Going Home Consortium has been leading efforts to provide innovative and culturally responsive reentry and reintegration services to justice-involved individuals, their families, and communities.
GHH has taken the initiative to develop a strategy for intergovernmental collaboration meetings leading up to a Reentry Housing Summit in April 2023. The Coordinator and Commission will be an active part in the intergovernmental collaboration and staff will attend the Reentry Housing Summit.
