This week on Helping Hand it’s returning guest Mental Health Kōkua, the largest mental health non-profit in the state, providing services for more than 40 years, and best known for helping the homeless and mentally ill. Tomorrow entertainer Jeff Bridges is appearing at the Sheraton Maui as part of the Maui Celebrity Series, with a portion of the proceeds going toward Mental Health Kōkua. Today we’ll hear more about their mission on Maui with CEO Greg Payton.
Helping Hand is a weekly feature on HPR1 stations each week. On Friday afternoons, Helping Hand puts the spotlight on an organization, topic or event in the community that offers assistance to the disabled and other folks who are among the most vulnerable with local HPR All Things Considered host Dave Lawrence.
