February marks six months since fires ravaged through our town of Lahaina.

Hui No Ke Ola Pono has been part of the [recovery] efforts, since day one, as we canvased through shelters, ran a donation center, delivered supplies to families who took in other families, helped to open Lahaina Comprehensive Health Center, and created critical partnerships to stay engaged as we plan and transition into the long-term recovery phase.

Additionally, we continued to stay open and provided uninterrupted services to the patients and clients we serve. Our services include adult primary care, dentistry, behavior health, cardiac rehabilitation, traditional healing, community outreach, workforce training, a wellness center, and our Simply Healthy Cafe.

We continue to evaluate our responsibility to our Native Hawaiian community while also assessing our role in the recovery efforts of Lahaina. If you are a Native Hawaiian resident of Maui, please take our Community Needs Assessment, we’d love to hear from you.
