This week on Helping Hand we get a return visit from RYSE, Residential Youth Services and Empowerment. The nonprofit operates an access center where Honolulu-area street youth 18-24 are assessed and referred to appropriate support services, according to their website, and get access to a safe temporary living space. HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence speaks with Carla Houser, Executive Director of RYSE.

Helping Hand is a weekly feature airing statewide on HPR1 stations Fridays as part of our afternoon drive broadcast of All Things Considered, and then archived online here. Every week, Helping Hand puts the spotlight on an organization, topic or event that offers assistance to people with disabilities and people and animals that are the most vulnerable.
