When adults do better - children, families and communities do better. This is the core philosophy of Advocates Hawai'i - a private business with a community mission. Our purpose is to help adults and families to be better and live better in Hawai'i. We do this by connecting people to resources and opportunities which support their ongoing education, self-development and empowerment.
We envision a Hawai'i in which adults are resilient - managing life's challenges in healthy, constructive ways; and inspired - learning, growing and improving themselves, their families and their communities.
Living in beautiful Hawai'i can be a challenge on many levels. Struggling to meet basic needs leaves adults with little time learn effective coping strategies or engage in self-improvement. Advocates Hawai'i exists to connect adults to resources that are truly useful and impactful. We do this by listing resources specifically designed for these purposes; and hope you'll find help quicker by using this platform.
Please note, Advocates Hawai'i strives to list the best resources in Hawaii, however, we do not guarantee your satisfaction with any particular company or organization. If you find any errors or outdated listings; kindly let us know!
Our Hawai'i Resource Guide connects users to a wealth of local services designed to help adults to learn, grow and improve. The guide is FREE and is intended to help users find resources quicker. Users are encouraged to recommend services that they have found useful for inclusion in the Guide. All submissions will be reviewed for appropriateness before being posted.
Advocacy brings together individuals, families and groups who are creating solutions to some of the toughest problems affecting Hawai'i's families. Each year Advocates Hawai'i selects which areas it will focus its efforts on based on community urgency and available financial and volunteer resources.
Productivity and rewarding work help to build our feelings of accomplishment and pride. Striving for higher levels of achievement is an innate human drive - yet, finding a passion and creating a vision for our lives can be daunting. Career coaching and highly effective professional development training can help you get there!
