Hawaii's homeless population is on the rise, and becoming more apparent everywhere around the islands. Without offering any easy solutions, this week's panel will discuss how the problem of homelessness can be addressed.

Panelists: CONNIE MITCHELL, Executive Director of the Institute for Human Services; CAROL IGNACIO, Executive Director of the Offices for Social Ministry, Catholic Diocese of Honolulu; DONAVIC TOTOA, a high school student who lives with her family at the Next Step shelter; and SANDRA MIYOSHI-State Homeless Programs Branch Administrator.

This conversation was recorded on March 25, 2010 in the PBS Hawaii studio.

Insights on PBS Hawaii is presented on Thursdays at 7:30 PM on PBS Hawaii.
