The Salvation Army's Hilo Temple Corps Community Center serves the people of Hawaii residing on the eastern side of the Big Island of Hawai'i. In addition to Hilo Corps' function as a church, it provides emergency assistance to families needing help including food, clothing, basic utility and short-term shelter assistance.
It also provides seasonal assistance to families for their special needs during the holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas, and the essential back-to-school needs of children.
Three times a week, the Hilo Temple Corps, in partnership with local civic volunteer groups, serves hundreds of homeless and needy individuals a nutritious, hot meal through its Soup Kitchen.
The Hilo and Kona Salvation Army also provide a full range of outreach, prevention and residential services for youths at risk through its Family Intervention Services.
