Share Your Mana
To place in authority, empower, authorize.
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.
Formed with all currently or previously unhoused/unsheltered Maui County residents, the Advisory Committee are experts in surviving in the most inhumane conditions. Their first-hand, lived experiences of trying to navigate agency protocols under dire conditions are the needed voices to change this broken system.
The complexities of living unsheltered on Maui, Hawaii
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.
Being a part of the solution is a powerful statement.
We are intentionally designed to create transparency through inclusive dialog and initiate community action steps to foster healthy community growth for those who are unsheltered.
