STAR-ADVERTISER
                                A homeless encampment along Lualualei Beach Park is seen the day before a planned city “enforcement” action, in July 2022. The number of homeless people on Oahu increased for the second year in a row — to 4,494 in January — with the greatest increase among those considered “unsheltered,” meaning they were not staying in homeless shelters.
