Share Your Mana

Hawaiian:Mana

To place in authority,
empower,
authorize.

Share your mana was created after years of participation and witnessing that the systems are not comprehensive the current systems and that we need to approach success through the eyes of the individuals experiencing these situations and conditions.

They can’t tell us where the systems are working and where they are failing. In many ways they are failing because their current systems have not evolved to engage the way that communities have struggled with mental health and addiction crisis under funding. The systems haven’t evolved fast enough to meet needs.

Share your mana meets peoples needs at the moment they experience it. It isn’t shelved it isn’t put off till next week or next month it is met in the in the moment that it is existing.

MISSION

To transform the lives of the homeless through innovative solutions inspired by the community.

VISION

By improving the quality of life for those most vulnerable, we raise everyone’s quality of life.

The complexities of living unsheltered on Maui, Hawaii

Share Your Mana understands the complexities of living unsheltered AND the actions necessary to move individuals into self-sufficiency.

Now, more than ever, it takes more than a few non-profits and government agencies to address this complex community issue. It takes community partnerships and the ability to bridge all resources.
Share Your Mana recognizes time, organization, and transparency are necessary key elements to strengthen communities with unique needs.

Equation for healthy changes requires collaboration:

Experience + vision + compassion + drive = strong community quality of life.
