INPEACE Hi‘ilei has earned a prestigious endorsement from Parents as Teachers National Center, Inc., (PATNC) as a Blue Ribbon Affiliate, making it one of the top-performing home visiting affiliates within Parents as Teachers’ international network. The official designation was made in October 2022.
Hawai‘i Community Foundation (HCF) has been a long-standing partner and funder for INPEACE programs. Since 2014, INPEACE has received multiple grants to support both programmatic and organization wide initiatives
INPEACE’s Ho‘oulu Waiwai (“to build wealth”) program has been running for eight years now and has provided financial workshops and counseling for over 1,600 people, most of them Native Hawaiian. The program uses mo‘olelo (Hawaiian stories) and ‘ōlelo no‘eau (Hawaiian proverbs) to help participants better understand financial concepts.
INPEACE’s Ka Lama program aims at getting more Wai‘anae Coast residents certified to teach in the schools within their community. In recent years, the Delores Curtis Scholarship has helped immensely in achieving this goal. A retired University of Hawai‘i professor, Dr. Delores Curtis seeks to honor the memory of one of her most cherished colleagues through this scholarship fund.
Aloha United Way and the Hawai‘i Community Foundation are committed to finding solutions that lead to a more equitable and sustainable Hawai’i. We are excited to share that INPEACE – Ho’oulu Waiwai Financial Capabilities is part of the 2022 – 2024 ALICE Initiative Cohort and have been granted $300,000 over the next three years!
