Our Mission is to share the aloha spirit with visitors affected by adversity.  We recognize that even during fun and relaxation of vacations, unfortunate events can happen, and when far from home, visitors do not usually have access to their own support systems and resources.  VASH assistance is designed to help visitors cope with and recover from a variety of unfortunate situations such as crime victimization, the loss of a purse or wallet, medical situations, or the death of a loved one.  When VASH receives referral calls from the Hawai`i County Police Department, local area hospitals, airport security and others in the visitor industry, we assess each visitors situation and needs on a case by case basis to offer appropriate supportive services.
