Worst homeless epidemic Hawaii has ever seen?

I am a 10th grade student at Lahainaluna High School. I am sending this letter because I am concerned with the issue of homelessness in Hawaii.

I am concerned with this issue because I see homeless people on the streets, and I see that they are struggling.

I believe that this issue is important because there are currently around 15,000 homeless individuals in Hawaii, and we are currently facing one of the worst if not the worst homeless epidemics Hawaii has ever seen.

I urge you to give more care to the homeless people by giving them food daily and by sheltering them.
