Support Our Kupuna
Help Nā Hoaloha keep seniors at home and out of institutions by supporting a kupuna for $75 annually. At approximately $1.50 a week (less than a cup of coffee) you can help a senior remain in their home. Currently, Nā Hoaloha provides supportive services to over 450 homebound kupuna in Maui County. We help seniors get to doctors’ appointments, shop for food and medication. Our programs help reduce social isolation and depression, and increase health and safety. The services provided by Nā Hoaloha volunteers save Maui County roughly $800,000 annually; and provide the informal caregiving that makes a difference in the way in which a senior can age in place. Our aging community is growing at the fastest rate in the country: 190% in Hawaii compared to 26% nationally. Nā Hoaloha has experienced a 40% growth in participant requests in the last year. Due to cuts in government funding, this is the first time in 20 years of service that our programs haven’t received full funding for the current fiscal year. Therefore, we are asking the community for help. Your sponsorship of $75 a year can help a homebound senior remain independent and enhance their quality of life.
