Our impact
Collectively, we have made great progress and growth, but what excites us the most is the enormous potential we have to do even more.

Mahalo donors! Words cannot express the gratitude that I feel. I am currently working two jobs while also pursuing higher education, so this means so much to me. I hope to continue my work as a Registered Behavior Technician working with kids with developmental disabilities, continue to gain clinical hours for my degree, and I also plan to keep singing at events to spread aloha! With your help, I will graduate with my Master’s in Education in the Spring of 2023! As a Native Hawaiian, I know I am in the minority that gets the privilege to earn a master’s degree, and it has only been possible with your help.
