Share Your Mana


Hawaiian: Mana

To place in authority, empower, authorize.


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


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

Share Your Mana was created after years of participating and witnessing fractured systems which are unable to meet the needs of those living unhoused / unsheltered in real time.  As  the needs of poverty have increased, the systems haven’t evolved fast enough to meet needs. We need to approach success through the eyes of the individuals experiencing these situations and conditions.

Share Your Mana is addressing system failures through the lived experience through the residents we serve. Their struggles and inability to climb out of homelessness are exacerbated due to systems that lack sufficient mental health and addiction crisis services. These crisis maintain the status quo.

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.

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.

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