The following report examines racial equity in the homeless population, homelessness service utilization, and housing service outcomes for the Honolulu County Continuum of Care (CoC), Partners in Care (PIC), for the time period July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019. Specific research questions included:

  • Do racial disparities exist in the homelessness population?
  • Do racial disparities exist in service provision?
  • Do racial disparities exist in housing services outcomes?

To answer these questions, researchers from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa examined U.S. Census data, 2019 Point-in-Time Count data, and data from the CoC’s Homelessness Management Information System (HMIS). Preliminary findings are presented in this report.
