Housing the Homeless: Collaborative Compassion

Public Interest Attorney

Kim Coco was the Homeless Outreach Coordinator and then the Managing Attorney of Volunteer Legal Services Hawaiʻi.

Responsible Business Owner

Kim Coco owns Affordable Quality Apartment Rentals (AQuA), LLC — 50% of her apartments provide housing to low-income or previously-homeless families.

Licensed Foster Parent

Kim Coco has been a certified therapeutic foster mom to teenagers, many of whom had previously experienced homelessness.

“Through Kim Coco’s leadership, we were able to provide legal services to more low-income and homeless families with the same limited resources.”


– H. Doug Matsuoka, Advocate for Houseless

“Kim Coco is part of the solution. She reached out to programs serving the homeless until she rented an apartment to a hard-working father of three. His family slipped into homelessness and had been living in their van for three years.”

– Catherine Graham, Housing Advocate

“I watched Kim Coco support her foster kids and their siblings. She fought hard to make sure their voices were heard and that they had greater access to a brighter future.”

-Annabel Murray, Family Law Attorney
