While the challenge seems relentless, all of us together can do great things. So we ask for your support – now more than ever. The continued support of individuals like you within our community help fulfill our mission to serve the communities surrounding Palama Settlement.

Your gift, no matter what the size, provides support for our many programs that serve primarily at-risk youth and families in our community. Give today and make a difference in the communities we serve.
