Our volunteers help seniors remain independent.

In 2020, every fourth person in Hawaii will be 60 years of age or older. As Maui County’s population ages, many residents will be faced with caring for a family member or will need services themselves. Services such as rides to a doctor, or to get medication or groceries can impact the ability to live independently. Nā Hoaloha provides these essential services to increase the chances of staying at home as long as possible. Our volunteers provide escort transportation services, friendly visits, telephone reassurance, and respite services. We are able to do so through the generosity of our funders and our volunteers. Our services are provided entirely by volunteers.

Na Hoaloha

Taro is the staple of the Native Hawaiian diet and at the core of the Hawaiian culture. It is one of the single most well-known, important, and reliable plants in all of Polynesia. Taro, called “kalo” in Hawaiian, is central to the Native Hawaiian creation story—the taro nourishes and sustains life. This is why we chose the taro leaf to represent Nā Hoaloha—we also strive to sustain the life and well-being of our neighbors.
