Mālama I Ke Ola Street Medicine Program

Mālama I Ke Ola Street Medicine Program

Street Medicine serves the homeless community by providing direct medical care on the streets to the unsheltered and often hardest to reach populations. This is a care model focused on delivering care wherever homeless people feel comfortable.

Program Goals:

  • Establish relationships and increased access to care for the un- sheltered homeless community in Lahaina, Kihei, and Kahului. Expansion into Paia and Wailuku in-progress.
  • Reduce the utilization of emergency services
  • Provide early interventions for wound care, treatments for skin conditions, and other common medical needs often seen among the homeless, such as UTIs
  • Reduce hospital admissions and/or length of stay
  • Reduce harm while living unsheltered and improve quality of life

We partnered with Maui Rapid Response (MRR): A group of individual homeless outreach volunteers with established relationships among the homeless, along with Maui Rescue Mission that provides essential resources such as food, water, showers, laundry, and hygiene kits to the homeless.
