Community Members Come Together

In an effort to bring community members together, the Community Services Division of Palama Settlement organized the first Community Stakeholders Luncheon on April 3, 2014, at Palama.  The purpose is to establish a group with representatives from different Kalihi housing organizations, businesses, and service providers to create a forum for which concerns can be brought to the table and collaborations can develop.

“We hope that people can help each other with some of the issues and problems they are having.” said Pauni Nagaaseu, Community Services Program Manager.

Topics discussed were the processes of food bank distribution, security, property tresspassing, and communication of programs and services.  The group intends to meet on a regular basis at Palama.
