HONOLULU, Hawai‘i - The Senate today honored Debs ”Auntie Debs” Dudoit for the work she does in the community alongside her husband, Mitch, and close group of friends. Auntie Debs is the co-founder of My Father’s House, Hawai‘i, a nonprofit ministry whose vision is to heal hearts and restore lives. She is heavily involved as a volunteer with the U.S. Veterans Transitional Home in Kalaeloa/Barbers Point. After helping a friends’ son get into the housing 10 years ago, her love for the veterans has grown into annual holiday celebrations, as well as multiple visits to the home each year to listen to stories and uplift spirits.
Auntie Deb, her friends and family, recently celebrated their 10th Annual Christmas event in December at the Transitional Home, with over 70 veterans in attendance for a celebration that included live music and hula. Auntie Deb says she does it from her heart and she loves seeing the smiles on their faces. The Senate congratulated Auntie Debs, and her family and friends, for their selfless acts of aloha and for making a difference in the lives of so many.
