Established in 1896, Palama Settlement is a non-profit, community-based social service agency serving the Kalihi and Palama neighborhoods. We offer a wide range of educational, recreational, athletic, cultural, social, health, and community building programs and services for children, youth, adults, and senior citizens.
Our mission is to partner with those who have the greatest needs in our community, empowering them to enhance their well-being through education, health and recreation.
Join us for our annual Malama Palama Gala on September 15, 2018 at the Sheraton Waikiki as we honor former Governors George Ariyoshi and Ben Cayetano for their dedication to our organization and commitment to bettering our community.
The evening will feature a silent auction and dinner, program celebrating our two honorees, and live entertainment.
