BY INVITATION

After serving the homeless population in the Mainland for 25 years, Regina Weller was invited here by Steve and Mavourneen Wilcox of the Wilcox Foundation to assist with the homeless issues on the Big Island.  Regina arrived at the start of 2018 and expanded the Homeless Task Force 

501(c)3 Nonprofit Charity to the 

State of Hawaii, under  the trade name:

808 HOMELESS TASK FORCE


"The days are over when one could walk by a homeless person and think 'they are not my business, not my concern, or I don't want to get involved.'  The numbers of un-housed have substantially increased, so that homeless are everywhere, and in your presence.  It's both a hardship for them and for the community.   I consider this a crisis - it needs to be addressed as an emergency, and it's imperative to address the need one person at a

 time.  We cannot put people in a box, they are individuals just like you and I, and they need guidance and direction to get out of the hole they're in. Problem solving and practical methodology cannot be delayed.  Acts of goodwill are the only remedy to saving a life and bettering the community as a whole.  May God bless the works of our hands." 


- Regina Weller, Executive Director
