Lindsay Ann Pacheco is originally from McCully on the island of Oʻahu, and now resides in Kakaʻako. Prior to being housed, Lindsay spent 8 years houseless, much of it in Kakaʻako Park areas. During this time, Lindsay and a small group of friends worked to organize Ka Poʻe O Kakaʻako: The People Of Kakaʻako (KPOK). They encouraged folks in their encampment to participate in weekly community service projects to help clean the park and the streets where surrounding businesses were located. Lindsay and her fellow KPOK leaders also began attending Neighborhood Board meetings on a regular basis to help address the concerns about their encampment that were coming from the wider community. In doing so KPOK gained the friendship and support of many housed allies. Lindsay got housed in May of 2020, re-enrolled into college in pursuit of a degree in Social Work, and has become a strong advocate for those who continue to remain houseless. Also as a result of becoming a strong advocate on houselessness, Lindsay has co-founded the O'ahu Lived Experience Council (OLEC) which is a speakers bureau made up of 12 un-housed and housed folks willing to share their own stories and experiences of houselessness.
