The beginning of a New Year 2014 here in Honolulu revealed and pointed straight to what Hawaii and Paradise for many is truly like.

Mayor Caldwell & Hawaii State Governor Abercrombie 's failed policies and mis-management of HUD & other housing funding and services continue to put the homeless in the morgue. No safe zone for Tabitha Woods who died in Waikiki Homeless unable to get vital services and denied shelter that could have saved her life.

The death of a Homeless Mother (a Sister & a Daughter) Tabitha Woods  who was all three.  Tabitha’s death glares into the real facts of Mayor Kirk Caldwell, Governor Neil Abercombie, their staff and cabinet amongst many, the States highly paid housing Czar , Colin Kiplin and City employee Jun Yang failed policies, misappropriation of funds, lack of accountability and the denial of services for many Homeless individuals, including families, women, the disabled and  veterans. The truth of our Island Paradise is  a reality and nothing more than a battle zone with Hawaii’s homeless count rising as fast, along side of the expensive high end priced Towers and high-rise Condo’s of Corporations like the Howard Hughes and other Developers. A recent fact of the depth of Hawaii’s corruption and misappropriation, is the example of the real problems, the $8 million dollars in HUD Money scuffled, given to and  then squandered by ORI with the approval of Mayor Caldwell & Hawaii State Governor Abercrombie,  these failed mis-management of  these HUD money & other housing funding, policies and services that continue to put the homeless on the front lines at risk and for many in the morgue. While the FBI closes their eyes to the ORI $8 million dollars in HUD Money scandal, with kick backs and campaign favors, no criminal prosecution. HUD and the FBI only see it fit to chase after are most vulnerable,  the families in our Hawaii’s public housing with an intent that will displace and put more of  Hawaii’s families, children and people on the streets homeless.

Tabitha Woods died homeless, tried to relied on other homeless when the Mayor of the City of Honolulu & Hawaii Governor Abercrombie failed to protect & provide adequate services

There was no safe zone for Tabitha Woods who died on January 3, 2014 in Waikiki, Homeless unable to get vital services and was denied shelter and protection that could have saved her life. The continued street sweep do nothing, offer no safety to a homeless person, only trauma, as the personal effects of a homeless person are tossed into city trash trucks, with the lies of our state, no storage or chance for retrieval, denying the homeless any constitutional rights and further creating  harmful outcomes for those just trying to have their basic rights to live out of harms way protected and acknowledged.

Our local, state federal government, HUD and other top agencies have failed, no oversight, accountability or transparency of mis-managed funds, of the employees who mis-appropriate money, and the services the money was intended for. Many so-called “Homeless” workers and leaders take no action, coward to stand up  to ensure rights and benefits for the homeless , Colin Kipin, Ron Han, Darryl Vincent and others,  only benefit from a guaranteed paycheck, benefits and expensive meetings with fancy meals at Hawaii top Hotels  and out of state conferences chatting up the Homeless model and statistics.

Another example of the failures and pointless direction and non – accountability, or true investigation of mismanagement of funds and elite paychecks and benefits to “Homeless”  leaders and workers is Ms. Lynn Maunakea, who was the Executive Director at IHS the Institute for Human Services, during her employment  from 1997 to 2005 as the Executive Director at IHS, not only did Lynn receive a guaranteed paycheck, fancy meals and trips, but Ms. Maunakea pushed her power and greatly benefited in a little known, hush hush agreement with the Boards of IHS. The Board approval of Ms. Lynn Maunakea to have paid College tuition by IHS  a homeless shelter and a non profit agency who mission and funding is supposed to get homeless off the streets.

Ms. Maunakea after obtaining her paid college degree by IHS  from the University of Hawaii, left the homeless Shelter and non profit agency, it is unknown if the quick departure of Ms. Maunakea required her to payback and reimburse IHS the Homeless Shetler for the money  the board approved and paid her tuition to the University of Hawaii.  Ms. Maunkea resigned as the Executive Director of IHS in December of 2005.
