Programs, including revenue & expenses
Holiday Christmas Party/Support: This is another backbone of our program which helps to raise the self-esteem and self-worth of the homeless children. While Christmas might seem not a necessity in life, it is truly life-changing to hundreds of our homeless children living in extreme poverty. Having Santa and his elves actually deliver gifts specifically for that child in need is a life changing experience for these precious children. Most of these children have never had a Christmas, a tree, or a hot meal, a family gathering, nothing as we deem normal. When Santa brings their hearts desire (which is typically a simple toy or a life need), these children truly feel loved and wanted, cared about other than in their world of abandonment. On the Big Island the over 350 homeless children will be invited and brought to a holiday party complete with Santa and his elves, games to win prizes, crafts to make and take as gifts, hot nutritious meal and of course sit on Santa's lap and get a special gift and photo op. Children on the island of O'ahu will have their Christmas eve filled with Santa and his elves arrivals all along the water's edge and high in the mountains. From sun up to sun down Santa will assure that all the children are cared for. This year due to the encampment cleansweeps conducted by the state, so many children were displaced and not in a stable encampment. This caused us to really have to search harder to assure no child was left out. We also adopted a pre-school for homeless children with attendance of 57 children.

OUTREACH and AWARENESS PROGRAM: While this is what makes the difference year round to the children we provide service to, it is basic and simply put. Our volunteers conduct outreach throughout the month to various homeless encampments, seek out new homeless families and keep track of those in our program. We provide monthly hygiene and food boxes. Clothing and life necessities on a scheduled basis. As well provide emergency care for those who have either just became homeless or had an issue with their current living situations. We provide tents, cook stoves, sleeping bags, pillows, clothing, food, etc for those in need. Our primary focus is to provide the immediate of every child we encounter during our outreach. We do have a lack of storage so have not been able to have as much supplies on hand as we had hoped for this year. As well, we have faced so many encampment closures due to cleansweeps of the state. This has caused a hardship on our agency to try to help the homeless families re-establish and replace all that was lost to the sweeps. In addition, we have provided more hygiene gift cards and stopped our food boxes, rather we give meal cards. It is easier for them to use and they don't have to worry about hauling heavy food when asked to leave. We do not provide emergency outreach during the months of our summer educational program and Christmas due to lack of funding.

Our major accomplishment is our SUMMER EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM: For our 12th year this year we actually expanded our jr. leader pilot program. Allowing more jr. leaders and teen mentors to the program. What a learning experience for everyone. Maybe a once in a lifetime? This teen week was designed to allow teens who had graduated through our program when they were younger and now on their way to a brighter future. To come back and mentor the younger children, to share their experiences and why this program is so important. The entire week was full of cultural learning, workshops, leadership classes, and bonding exercises. All before they were paired with younger children to mentor during the Edu-Camp sleepover camp on the Big Island. Sleepover Camp on big island allowing the children to escape their everyday hardship of living homeless and learning life and social skills to help them succeed. This camp allows for the public community to be more involved with sharing their talents and teaching new skills to the homeless children. We introduce a wide-variety of activities and venues from art, culture, yoga, reading, theater, music and more. We also provide eye and oral exams. Our main goal is to help them gain the self-esteem as well as life and social skills to help them succeed in school. Adventures Abound Day camp is our session on O'ahu and allows the children to explore the wonders of their island. They will go on field trips, adventures and learn the basic life and social skills to succeed in school. This is our 12th year and we strive to advance with each year.The volunteers pick the homeless children up every morning at 7a.m. get them fed and ready for the day. Pair them with their teen mentor and get ready for the field trips across the island. Exploration through the zoo, aquarium, discovery zone, and other educational programs. The overall goal is to provide them with newfound skills to succeed in school. At the end of both camps children and their siblings all receive their new backpacks filled with supplies and new outfits to start their first day of school. Our camp is open free of charge to children ages 3-7 and teens enrolled in high school. Our camp also helps to provide first to work moms the opportunity not only work alongside their children while gaining training skills but fulfill their needed hours. Also working with university students to help them with their practicums. This camp is designed to provide ample opportunities to the community to help all sorts of members succeed and meet their goals. We typically have 2 interns and 3-5 first to work parents attend our camp.

This camp is designed to provide ample opportunities to the community to help all sorts of members succeed and meet their goals. We typically have 2 interns and 3-5 first to work parents attend our camp.Our major accomplishment is our SUMMER EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM: For our 10th year this year we actually added a TEEN WEEK to this years summer educational program. What a learning experience for everyone. Maybe a once in a lifetime? This teen week was designed to allow teens who had graduated through our program when they were younger and now on their way to a brighter future. To come back and mentor the younger children, to share their experiences and why this program is so important. The entire week was full of cultural learning, workshops, leadership classes, and bonding exercises. All before they were paired with younger children to mentor during the Edu-Camp sleepover camp on the Big Island. Sleepover Camp on big island allowing the children to escape their everyday hardship of living homeless and learning life and social skills to help them succeed. This camp allows for the public community to be more involved with sharing their talents and teaching new skills to the homeless children. We introduce a wide-variety of activities and venues from art, culture, yoga, reading, theater, music and more. We also provide eye and oral exams. Our main goal is to help them gain the self-esteem as well as life and social skills to help them succeed in school. Adventures Abound Day camp is our session on O'ahu and allows the children to explore the wonders of their island. They will go on field trips, adventures and learn the basic life and social skills to succeed in school. This is our 10th year and we strive to advance with each year.The volunteers pick the homeless children up every morning at 7a.m. get them fed and ready for the day. Pair them with their teen mentor and get ready for the field trips across the island. Exploration through the zoo, aquarium, discovery zone, and other educational programs. The overall goal is to provide them with newfound skills to succeed in school. At the end of both camps children and their siblings all receive their new backpacks filled with supplies and new outfits to start their first day of school. Our camp is open free of charge to children ages 3-7 and teens enrolled in high school. Our camp also helps to provide first to work moms the opportunity not only work alongside their children while gaining training skills but fulfill their needed hours.

Our outreach and awareness is not really 3rd in line, but it isn't quite as impacting as the other two. Our goal is to visit the homeless children across the island on a monthly basis to assure they have adequate hygiene, living necessities, food boxes, and other items they might be of need. We spend 3-5 days a month conducting outreach, seeking out new places, finding the truly hidden homeless children and bring them supplies. We spend 6 days a month conducting awareness in the community. Helping to get the community more involved and setting up collections for the homeless keiki needs. We also visit schools, work with teen programs and help the community develop plans and programs to help the over all success of the children's future. We also participate in various community events, charity events, public events that will help create an awareness and network to continue our services to the ever growing needs of homelessness in Hawaii

Project Hawaii Inc second accomplishment is our Holiday Christmas Party. Providing parties on both the big island and Oahu. This year we were able to provide services to over 650 homeless children living in poverty that would otherwise gone without the wonders of the holiday, let alone a healthy holiday meal. Our holiday parties come complete with Santa visits and photos, games with life necessity prizes, healthy meals, make and take crafts and of course their holiday wishes to fill their hearts with joy. These children live in tents, cars and substandard housing, not knowing what day is different from the next, and never expecting a visit from Santa. This holiday is the most important to building their self esteem and letting them know they are worth a new toy, a new outfit and the joy of a holiday party made just for them. In addition, we were able to set up a satellite system in Kona for over 100 homeless children to enjoy the wonderful healthy meal. This satellite system included many local organic farmers, and other community members who wanted to make even more support available for those in need.
