Our Impact in Hawai‘i
Children and Youth
In Hawai‘i, we have learned that culture is a protective factor that can improve well-being and prevent childhood adversity. Our Hawai‘i partners are grounded in community and serve children and families with deep respect for place and culture.
“…Our underlying belief is that the health of our Native Hawaiian community is directly tied to Hāloa. When Hāloa is in abundance, then we think Native Hawaiians are going to be in abundance….”
– Vili, Ma ka Hana ka ‘Ike
“I would like us to renew hope for those who lost it and to give hope to those who never had it.”
