Mission Statement

Ho'ola Na Pua is committed to providing a nurturing home that meets the unique needs of underage female sex trafficking victims through the utilization of individualized, comprehensive, and restorative therapies.

Description

Ho'ola Na Pua is a Hawaii-based, 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to provide underage female victims of sex trafficking with a pu’uhonua (a safe place) where they can begin to heal from their physical, spiritual, and emotional abuse. Our goal is to provide a holistic approach to mental health, psychosocial and educational services, and emotional healing in the safety of a long-term licensed residential facility for minors rescued from sex trafficking.

Our volunteers work tirelessly, networking and collaborating with political figures, the justice system, social services, faith-based communities, state licensing institutions, foundations, health care professionals, and other community members in Hawaii who share our mission to improve the lives of these underage victims. We are an active member of the Hawaii Coalition Against Human Trafficking Task Force.

Currently, Ho'ola Na Pua is the only organization in Hawaii working to build a long-term licensed residential facility of this kind.

Think the world of these volunteers and what Ho'ola Na Pua is doing in the community! They are amazing to work with. Their aim to fight sex trafficking through education and awareness, rescue and restore victims, decrease demand, and work with legislation to improve laws is a huge undertaking. I believe they do a fabulous job and would recommend them to anyone!

Wonderful team of hardworking, dedicated volunteers taking a united stand against child sex trafficking. We are working to provide a safe home for child victims of sex trafficking, and busy raising awareness about the issue via educational and awareness programs in our local community.
