The mission of Project Hawai'i Inc. is to help our islands keiki (children in Hawaiian) break the cycle of poverty. We enhance their lives by providing year round services that help to build their self-esteem and learn the proper life and social skills to succeed.


Our keiki live in poverty stricken situations and substandard housing spread across the islands. Some live along the waters’ edge in tents or high in the mountains in abandon cars or substandard makeshift shelters. Most live without running water or electricity and often go to bed without having a single meal. Many live without the simple basics of a blanket for warmth or a pillow for comfort. 

The state has over 23,000 homeless children living in substandard situation. This has caused our state to be NUMBER one in the nation for 5 years running for having the most unsheltered children per capita

As of January 2018, Hawaii had an estimated 6,530 residents that experience the struggle of homelessness on any given day.  Reported by the Continuum of Care to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on their ONE DAY Count

Our nonprofit organization is run 100% by volunteers and solely supported by public donations.

   WHO WE ARE   




Many people won't be ready for the recent emergency closings. Hawaii's homeless children face a much harsher reality as their daily meal they count on at school is not going to be there.


We don't know how long school will be out for these children, and we need YOUR HELP to make certain our keiki receive their daily meals. Please make your donation and help us reach our goal to provide 350 homeless children with food security. One step further .. you can sponsor ONE child a month for $7.

Easter is Coming Fast

During the Corona-19 Virus we are NOT taking Easter away  from our keiki.  Please donate today. We will be delivering Easter baskets, Hygiene and Meals.  DONATE TODAY 

Successful Holiday Season

Project Hawai'i finished the 2019 year with our Christmas Wish program providing more support and holiday cheer than ever. 


We provided nearly 800 children's Christmas wishes including stockings, nearly 2,000 warm meals, 1,350  hygiene bags, a Christmas party on the big Island for over 350 kids, and supported 215 teens  with new outfits, shoes, and socks.

We would like to thank all of our donors and volunteers who made this holiday season so much brighter and more joyous for our homeless keiki.


We are run 100% by donations received and volunteer hours so we truly couldn't do this without your support.


Big mahalo from the hearts of our keiki.
