Palama Settlement

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 help those with the greatest needs in our surrounding community to empower themselves through promoting education, health, and well-being.
