Cassandra Bromfield and her family work through the Family Education Training Center of Hawaii and Hawaii 4-H to provide much needed assistant to homeless families.
Homelessness has become a chronic social issue in Hawaii. When the Bromfield family moved to the state a few years ago, they noticed the need for homelessness assistant right away.
Stationed at a local military base, the Bromfields reached out to the Family Education Training Center of Hawaii and Hawaii 4-H to learn about the needs of the local homeless community. Soon the family’s children came up with a proposal that included a grant, donations, food, and volunteers to feed hundreds of homeless individuals several times a month.
Now, the family is engaged in providing food, clothing, and personal items to women, men, and sometimes entire families throughout the year. Due to the Bromfields’ efforts, many homeless families have been able to find jobs with the clothing provided. They have provided over 1,000 individuals with nutritious meals and children with uniforms, books and school supplies.
