Project Hawai'i Inc. is committed to realizing that each dollar donated is spent aligned to our mission and values. We work hard to care for the homeless keiki and demand the same from our funding sources. 

Outreach Program


Monthly outreach is the backbone to our success. Continuing to search for the homeless unsheltered children and providing monthly hygiene and meal cards as well as emergency care supportive needs.

We typically find 2-3 new families per month, and even more during the holidays.

We are able to reach out to approx. 1,500 homeless children annually. Currently we work with 408 on big island full-time, 186 on O'ahu full-time and 83 on Maui full-time.

Waikiki Teens on the Streets


Our Waikiki Teens on the Streets provides our 150 teens with their basic needs, gift cards for meals and hygiene. We also partner with retailers to help secure employment as well as training. Support services to keep them in school. We have also partnered with the S.I.S program to provide scholarships for college.

Our Teen Mentoring and Outreach programs have seen a 90% success rate of teens escaping their cycle of poverty. They graduate from High School, go on to college or pursue career choices.

Summer Educational Programs


Our award-winning summer camps provide the vital social and life skills needed for our children to succeed. We run our programs June-Aug. Our program is very unique by providing 3 levels of learning for our keiki so they can start camp as young as 3 years and then become teen mentors through high school.

This program also provide our 350 homeless children with their back to school supplies. For more details visit our summer camp site



Easter is another holiday that comes along with school breaks without meals and feelings of being forgot. Our agency delivers the joy of this holiday with Easter baskets, bunny bags of hygiene and meals. Once again providing self worth and feeling of being loved. Providing outreach across the islands to over 650 homeless children

Christmas Wish


Our Christmas Wish program is a unique experience for these children. Providing wishes wrapped from Santa and delivered by elves across the islands of O'ahu & Big Island to over 1,200 children in the most remote areas. As well we provide a holiday party for 350 children on the east side of Big Island. Our amazing event changes the lives of these children forever. To read a Christmas story click here

Dedicated Volunteers 

35,340 hours

We have a core team of volunteers who have made Project Hawai’i, Inc. success their passion. During the holidays we work with a hundreds of people to put together amazing programs for our keiki. In addition we have an internship program as well as provide opportunities for first to work moms. We also feel the importance of teaching our youth about service and provide 20 service projects annually.

Some might question how our volunteer base is so strong, or how we can rely on solely on volunteers.

Most of our volunteer staff and leaders have dedicated over a decade to create these programs for the children and some of our team outreach leaders were our clients years ago.

Everyone has a purpose in life, and we enroll those who purpose is to change lives of homeless children.
