Waikiki Community Center's mission to care for our kupuna (elders), keiki (children) and community as `ohana (family).
What We Do
Touch the Lives of Kupuna (elders) - We provide services to address whole-person wellness as well as urgent needs for seniors at risk of losing their independence and/or who need help accessing basic needs such as food, housing, medical care and transportation.
Close the Achievement Gap for our Keiki (children) - We providing quality early education and family support to close the persistent and growing achievement gap between children from low to moderate income families and their more advantaged peers.
Create a Stronger Community - We engage coalitions of community partners to build a stronger community, addressing issues of interest to community members such as disaster preparedness and pedestrian safety. Since the pandemic we dramatically increased support for the urgent needs of our seniors, families and unemployed visitor industry workers with our emergency food pantry and rental assistance services.
