Hands of Hope

There are many ways that teens and families can get involved together and volunteer in our community. One outreach for the homeless in the Central Oahu region is called Hands of Hope.

This event happens once a month and is held at the Wahiawa District Park. Many homeless and needy families come together to receive a great lunch, and free clothes and other things. Many youth and families volunteer to serve food, and distribute goods, and play with the children who attend.

If you are interested in being a part of the Hands of Hope Outreach in the future, please contact us at

Ho'omana Youth Empowerment

Ho'omana Youth Empowerment Day was a huge success!
The Ho'omana Foundation was created to inspire, uplift, motivate and empower Polynesians and others of all ages. Ho'omana shares the success stories of Polynesia to inspire others to live their dreams and be creators of their own destiny.

Jack Johnson playing at Youth Empowerment Day

Ho'omana held a youth empowerment day for the graduating seniors at Kahuku High school. They heard from inspirational speakers from their own community who have become successful. Some of these included Jack Johnson, Sam Choy, Miss Hawaii 2010, football players and a doctor. The youth were inspired to achieve their greatest potential and keep working hard even after high school.

Guest speakers

Ready for the Real World also extended our application deadline for 2011 scholarships for the seniors at Kahuku High School, in hopes that they will realize the possibility of college and pursue their dreams!
