Chelsea Davis of Hawaii News Now highlighted Maui Economic Opportunity’s BEST (Being Empowered and Safe Together) program that helps recently released inmates transition back into the community.
Many leave the jail/prison with no money, ID, health insurance, housing and other necessities. Bishop Pahia and his BEST crew, under the direction of Community Services Director Cassi Yamashita, are dedicated to helping former inmates with their first steps of freedom and getting established with housing, jobs and counseling to prevent them from reoffending.
Thank you to Chelsea and our BEST clients for helping cast a spotlight on one of the MEO programs that are “Helping People. Saving Lives.”
