A program that would fly homeless people in Hawaii back to the mainland is being greeted with skepticism by officials and groups that help the homeless.
A provision allowing the state Department of Human Services to run a voluntary “return to home” program is included in a new state law. The department said it doesn’t have immediate plans to implement the program, but officials still are worried.
“It’s encouraging people on the mainland to take a chance in coming to Hawaii, knowing they can be returned,” said Marc Alexander of the Institute for Human Services, the top homeless service provider in the state.
