Students from Waianae High School in West Oahu present their story, “Without Home”, about the Hale Aole homeless encampment near the boat harbor in Waianae. What makes Hale Aole different from other homeless encampments on Oahu is that the residents have established a set of rules for their community and take it upon themselves to enforce those rules. Although the residents of Hale Aole are technically homeless, many consider the encampment their home because it provides them with a safe haven. As one of the residents says: “How do know if it’s home? If it’s your sanctuary.”
