Our mission is to partner with those who have the greatest needs in our community, empowering them to enhance their well-being through education, health and recreation.
KEY SERVICES PROVIDED
Palama Settlement is a community-based social service agency that has supported the Kalihi-Palama-Liliha communities of urban Honolulu since its inception in 1896.
• Serving children – We are a safe space outside of school hours. We provide tutoring and homework help, a computer lab for technology skill-building, and an athletics program emphasizing character development through team sports. Youth join the swim squad, take art, hula, music, and cooking lessons, and learn about sustainability through a raised-bed garden and aquaponics system.
• Serving families – An emergency food and hygiene pantry are available on campus. We offer assistance meeting basic household needs and navigating government and agency systems.
• Serving seniors – Seniors keep their minds and bodies active through tai chi, line dancing, Zumba, hula, chair yoga, sewing, and ukulele classes.
