This week on Helping Hand we’re learning about the local non-profit Alea Bridge and the all-volunteer organization’s efforts to assist the homeless in the Aloha State, ranked as the single worst homeless crisis anywhere in the United States, per capita. HPR ATC Host Dave Lawrence speaks with Alea Bridge spokesperson Phil Acosta about their mission and upcoming July 30th fundraiser.

Helping Hand airs statewide on HPR1 stations each Friday as part of our afternoon drive broadcast of All Things Considered, and then appearing online here, where all of our Helping Hand segments and resources are archived. Every week, Helping Hand puts the spotlight on an organization, topic or event that offers assistance to the disabled and others among the most vulnerable.
