Mission Statement

Hawaiian Community Assets is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, HUD-approved housing counseling agency and community lending institution that builds the capacity of low- and moderate-income communities to achieve and sustain economic self-sufficiency with a particular focus on Native Hawaiians.

Description

HCA implements a unique, holistic approach to helping families achieve and sustain permanent housing. Named Kahua Waiwai, meaning "Foundation for Wealth," HCA's comprehensive program includes housing and financial education workshops, individualized counseling, and access to asset building services and financial products - all in the context of Native Hawaiian culture.

Kahua Waiwai espouses the basic philosophy of "A Sense of Place." The home is viewed as a foundation (Kahua). Upon this foundation is built the family's spiritual values and teachings (Waiwai). It is the spiritual value of the home and its surroundings that provides stability and the opportunity for families to build a secure future. Opportunities that help stabilize family life help to create a more stable community. A strong foundation, if built properly, will serve generations to come.
