Aloha United Way (AUW) is actively working to protect the health, safety, and well-being of our communities as Hawai‘i confronts the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The following programs have been launched as part of this ongoing effort.
KUPUNA CALL CENTER
This service is for seniors on O‘ahu, and is layered into the Aloha United Way 211 Helpline. It is made possible through a partnership with St. Francis Healthcare system.
Those 65 and older can call 211 to speak with a trained specialist who can assist him/her/them with accessing COVID-19 vaccine appointments.
Interpretation services are on stand-by. More information: Press Release
Residents who are eligible for the vaccine and live on Kaua‘i, Hawai‘i Island, Maui, Moloka‘i and Lāna‘i can find more information about registering for the vaccine at the Hawai‘i State Department of Health COVID-19 portal:
HAWAIʻI UTILITY BILL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
Due to high demand for assistance, this program’s funds have been depleted. Aloha United Way has stopped accepting new applications for this program.
