(Honolulu, HAWAI'I0--A 4/20 concert, the Mental Health Mele Benefit, will help the homeless served by Mental Health Kokua, a non-profit organization that provides transitional housing for individuals with mental illnesses.

The family event is scheduled for 5 to 10 p.m., tomorrow, Pier 10 at the Aloha Tower, says a statement from MHK.

Artists playing at the fundraiser are Nesian N.I.N.E., Pohaku and FaithAsia. A silent auction has also been planned and MHK will provide pupus.

“This event is to support Mental Health Kokua’s Homeless Project at Safe Haven,” says MHK. "All proceeds go to moving homeless adults with mental illness to permanent housing.”

Safe Haven provides services to people who are homeless and have a mental illness. Programs include skill development to help clients stabilize and attain permanent living situations, from a temporary, to a permanent housing situation.

MHK is the oldest non-profit mental health housing organization in Hawai’i, serving the homeless for 38 years. Safe Haven, one of its largest projects, is a 25-bed transitional shelter in downtown Honolulu.

MHK helps those in Hawai’i –in mental distress, emotional crisis, or recovering from serious mental illness—achieve their optimum level of recovery and ability to function in their community.
