Located in The Queen Liliʻuokalani Center for Student Services room 313c at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, Mālama Project seeks to provide a space where all students in recovery can feel safe, accepted, understood, and empowered. Cultural sensitivity and congruent practices, grounded in traditional Hawaiian values, are embedded in Mālama Projects practice.

The Hawaiʻi Life in the Time of COVID-19 Project is designed to engage our Hawaiʻi communities in examining, articulating and sharing the impacts of COVID-19 upon our Hawaiʻi island ways of life, livelihoods, health, families, communities, education, values and outlooks for the future.
Would you like to participate in this project? We welcome your stories or reflections in any form. You can request to be interviewed or self-record your own audio or video oral history; share photos from your journal/diary entries or daily life; or submit poetry, mele, or other art you may be creating while staying at home and practicing social distancing.
We have designed this project so that our community can reflect upon, share, and document their experiences; acknowledge significant events; honor courageous acts and selfless sacrifices; and help to understand social and economic trends as they unfold.
It is important to document this island-wide and global health crisis in real time, track how to effectively and respectfully respond to it, map pathways of recovery, and project lessons on how to prepare and respond to future pandemics.
The Center for Oral History (COH) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa is uniquely situated to provide an established and long-term platform for our Hawaiʻi families and communities to record their experiences living and working through this pandemic, drawing upon our cultural values and legacies.
As COVID-19 continues to spread through our community, the economic impacts of the pandemic are hitting people hard. Many residents have lost their income and are facing financial uncertainty. Here at Parents And Children Together (PACT) we are doing our very best serving our keiki and families during this pandemic, to provide the services they need to keep them safe, healthy, and able to withstand the social and economic impacts of the virus.

Your landlord cannot change the locks or otherwise lock you out of your rental unit without a court order, even if you have not paid your rent. A landlord is subject to paying you damages of up to 2 months rent, costs, and attorney fees if the landlord is found to have illegally locked out a tenant.
When the State Court moratorium on evictions ends (as of now May 29), if you cannot pay your rent, then you would be subject to an eviction if the Landlord gives you 5 business days notice of non-payment unless you qualify under the Federal moratorium protection, you would have 30 day notice for non-payment, that cannot be sent until at least July 26, 2020.
Federal Moratorium Protection: The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) announced that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have created online multifamily property lookup tools to help renters find out if they are protected from evictions during the COVID-19 pandemic. The tools allow renters to determine if the property they live in is included in the eviction moratorium under the CARES Act.
In working towards the vision of building a just society; we want to first help make the legal system a little less intimidating by providing easy to understand legal forms and brochures, including online forms that people can use when they go to court. Second, we help people help themselves by providing legal assistance so people can better know their rights and know how to solve their legal problems. Finally, we try to level the playing field by providing legal representation to those that need it the most.

TL;DR: "Re-opening" isn't about saving ordinary workers and earners. You can't save someone by infecting them with a deadly disease. "Re-opening" is about saving investors. These people are willing to risk workers' lives and shoppers' lives because they believe they do not have a shared microbial destiny with the rest of us. But the vast majority of Americans think re-opening is a bad idea. Ass a result, Texas, Ohio, Iowa all have snitchlines for bosses who want to punish mulish, uncooperative workers who think their job isn't worth their lives. If the won't go back go back to worK, their unemployment will be denied.
