Economic Stability

INPEACE engages in Family Economic Capacity Building to develop more economic options that enable individuals and ‘ohana to live in the communities they grew up in, pursue their dreams of sending their keiki to college, purchasing their own home, and being financially stable when they retire. Through community partnerships, these programs support families throughout their journey toward personal financial wellness, and economic stability by providing them with education, coaching, and access to experts in the field.

Since 2015, INPEACE has helped over 370 individuals refine their ideas and acquire the knowledge and skills needed to decide whether or not it was viable to continue or start a small business. Over the recent three year period, our West O‘ahu families have established 46 new start-up businesses, obtaining and registering their business licenses. With a number of existing small businesses, we supported a total of 156 businesses over the past three years. Of these, 106 businesses have taken their product to market, and 60 have realized a profit.
