The Salvation Army will host the 12th annual Health Fair for the Homeless at its Kahului location at 45 W. Kamehameha Avenue on Friday, Nov. 16, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The one-of-a-kind health fair is designed to help Maui's homeless population with their essential needs through the assistance of service agencies and vendors.

"This day provides a special opportunity for anyone unsheltered to come to a 'one-stop shop,' where a full range of healthcare and homeless services will be readily accessible," said Major Brian West, Salvation Army Maui County coordinator.
