Aloha from our Divisional Leaders

Majors John and Lani Chamness

As the economic landscape of our islands changes, new issues arise. We, at The Salvation Army, remain steadfast in our mission to uplift our community and serve those in need. This past year, we worked closely with our generous partners to aid others and effect positive change through our programs and services, including: drug and alcohol rehabilitation, youth and senior services, emergency disaster services, basic needs assistance, and spiritual services.

Vital support from our partnerships and donors helped us tackle new challenges and reach new goals. We were able to serve 87,905 people across the entire State of Hawaii, Guam, Saipan, the Federated States of Micronesia, and the Republic of the Marshall Islands.

We invite you to take a look at some of our highlights from 2017. The impact we made on others is impossible without supporters like you in our island communities. By supporting The Salvation Army, you enable us to do the most good in our local communities through ministry and social services.

Mahalo nui loa.

Feature Story

New Life for Davida

Single mother, Davida A., thought her world had fallen apart. After hitting rock bottom a few times, she turned to The Salvation Army for an opportunity to improve her life.

Davida was just six-years-old when her parents divorced. She moved around Oahu with her mother for years until they settled in Honokaa. “I never felt grounded, so I rebelled as a teen. Drugs and alcohol became so easy to get when I started hanging with the wrong crowd. I got married at age 18, only to find myself as a single mother a few years later.” Faced with raising two young children and paying bills on her own, Davida discovered crystal methamphetamine eased her stress.

By her mid-twenties, Davida was heavily addicted to crystal methamphetamine. She lost her family and home. Feeling hopeless, she sought help at The Salvation Army Addiction Treatment Services (ATS). Davida was able to find a solid foundation, “I sought treatment at other institutions, but ATS was different. The way they talked to me and helped me, I felt like a person of value. I felt like I mattered and they wanted the best for me,” she said.

Davida completed her treatment program and works full-time as a professional welder. “It is through The Salvation Army that I was able to turn my life around. Once I got clean and sober, blessings started to happen. I now have a degree, a steady job that I love, and I’ve reunited with my children.”

Basic Needs

A partnership that serves all

The collective hearts of local organizations and business leaders have created a wave of care and hope throughout our community. An ongoing alliance between The Salvation Army, Helping Hands Hawaii, and the State of Hawaii’s Homeless Initiative has generated meaningful impact and lasting solutions. The alliance, in partnership with the private sector, allows these organizations to share their programs and resources to better serve Hawaii’s homeless population. Everyone lends their strengths: The State of Hawaii focuses on strategy and providing solutions for the homeless communities; The Salvation Army conducts regular homeless outreach, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, and case management; and Helping Hands Hawaii provides a clinical approach to homelessness—putting homeless individuals and families in homes and providing access to mental health services.

According to a report from the Governor’s office, 2017 was a champion year for this collaborative work, resulting in a 9% decrease in individual homelessness and a 19% decrease in homeless families on Oahu—the first decline in homeless numbers in eight years. “At the end of the day, the work that we do is really just about people,” says Scott Morishige, the state’s Coordinator on Homelessness.

“We have been very blessed to have the trust of Hawaii’s business community,” explains Anna Stone, The Salvation Army’s Pathway of Hope director. “Together we can share resources, and refer clients to each other. Coming together to provide solutions is essential. We are all after increasing hope among those who have already given up trying.”

A clean start in Lahaina

Nani knows everyone who comes to the Homeless Drop-In Center at The Salvation Army Lahaina Lighthouse Corps. “I see these people because I am one of them. We come here to take a shower, have a hot meal, and much more,” she says. “We are all here because of certain circumstances and bad decisions.”

Nani is a 38-year-old mother of two little girls. She grew up in Lahaina and has lived there all her life and spent most of her childhood in a foster home. “As a child of the system, I started rebelling and experimenting with drugs in my teenage years. I got into meth and pills,” she says. “The Salvation Army is where I got help and learned how to love myself.”

The Lahaina Lighthouse Corps boasts one of the most compassionate homeless Drop-In Centers in the area. Envoys Kevin and Vidella Nagasaki run the center and make sure every person is clean, fed, and getting help.

Approximately 50 people visit the Drop-In Center every day. The showers are stocked with shampoo, soap, and toothpaste. Men can shave their beards and women have access to feminine products.

“Envoys Kevin and Vidella are trying to help my family get into a home of our own. My husband works two jobs while I take care of the kids during the day. It will happen soon. I have faith that it will.”

Emergency Disaster Services

Marco Polo

A fire at the Marco Polo condominium in Honolulu affected hundreds of its residents and killed three people. The Salvation Army was one of the first agencies on the scene to provide food, clothing, and emotional and spiritual care.

The Salvation Army case managers followed the immediate response team by helping affected residents find alternative housing and resources. Donations to the relief efforts helped The Salvation Army permanently house seven displaced households and stabilize an additional four households thanks to longtime community partner Kyo-ya Hotels & Resorts/Sheraton Princess Kaiulani.

20 families were served with housing placement services and case management after the fire displaced residents at the Marco Polo condominium.

Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey left thousands in Texas homeless in early September. On September 16, Kroc Center Hawaii sent a team of six individuals to aid in the relief and recovery efforts in Texas.

The team provided assistance in distributing food and water to remote areas of Texas. Based out of the distribution center in Beaumont, the Kroc Center Hawaii team ministered to first responders and hurricane survivors.

Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation

Cooking with a "Touch A Heart"

Cooking is not just a viable career path, it’s a life-skill that can literally feed a family and help save a household hundreds of dollars every month. The Salvation Army Family Treatment Services incorporates culinary classes, taught by the organization Touch A Heart, to prepare single mothers recovering from addiction so they may join the workforce. The mothers learn that cooking is a skill that promotes a healthy lifestyle and a foundation to build a stable home.

In addition to its partnership with The Salvation Army, the Touch A Heart program is also a beneficiary of the Central Pacific Bank Foundation. Central Pacific Bank is well-known for its involvement with The Salvation Army Angel Tree program during the holidays, but the acts of Aloha are year-round as demonstrated by its involvement with this program.

“I think The Salvation Army and Touch A Heart are great organizations that work together to really help people get back on their feet,” says Donna Takeda, Vice President & Director of Customer Experience at Central Pacific Bank. “Anything we can do to help folks avoid being in a homeless situation I think is something we need to do as a corporation to support those efforts.”

Youth Services

Gearing Children for Success

Helping hands are often connected to generous hearts. Bringing action and goodwill to those in need, Commercial Roofing & Waterproofing Hawaii partnered with The Salvation Army for its school supply drive to ensure our islands’ future leaders receive the items required for school year success.

“Our employees were excited for the opportunity to contribute back to their community,” explained Guy Akasaki, president of Commercial Roofing & Waterproofing Hawaii and a member of The Salvation Army’s Honolulu Advisory Board. “A partnership with The Salvation Army made sense for our company because we both believe in maximizing resources to provide the best services. I’ve seen how they can make the most out of every dollar spent on drug and alcohol rehabilitation, youth services, senior services, and feeding families that face financial hardships. They’re committed, just like we are, to ensuring there’s a roof over someone’s head.”

Providing access to school supplies reduces a major barrier to learning and offers Hawaii’s children the advantage they need to ignite their dreams. The school supplies were distributed across the island of Oahu through various Salvation Army programs. The children served by The Salvation Army each year through outreach and youth programs are either homeless or come from low-income households.

The Salvation Army has served 4,556 children in 2017 through feeding programs, homeless outreach, summer camp, after school programs, and services for at-risk youth.

Senior Care

Caring for our Kupuna like Family

“Many families come to us in need of someone they can trust to care for their parent while they’re at work,” said administrator Stacy Honma. “Recognizing the high cost in adult day care, we wanted to provide day care that the typical local family can afford.” The Salvation Army Adult Day Health Services (ADHS) values socialization and provides an alternative to institutionalized care for seniors suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.

“We foster healthy aging for older adults. Our goal is to engage our seniors in the community and incorporate social activities and exercise into their daily routine,” said Honma. “We feel this curriculum will improve or maintain the lives of our participants and encourage them to live life to the fullest.”

ADHS also provides tips and counseling to aid families in need of guidance in caring for their loved ones at home.

120th Anniversary in Kauai

Serving communities on Kauai Since 1897

In August 2017, The Salvation Army celebrated 120 years of service on the island of Kauai. Partners and Kauai Advisory Board members organized a fundraiser to celebrate the many contributions The Salvation Army made to the island:

The Salvation Army established the Lihue Community Corps Center in March of 1897. Later that year, the Koloa Corps was opened.

Seeing a need to expand services throughout the West side of the island, The Salvation Army established a service location in Hanapepe in 1946, now known as the Hanapepe Corps Community Center.

In 1982 Hurricane Iwa struck the island and affected hundreds of residents. The Salvation Army was one of the first organizations to respond by providing relief and resources to residents. Ten years later, Hurricane Iniki devastates the entire island. The Salvation Army stepped in to provide relief. The Salvation Army was able to serve in rebuilding homes and provide meals for months following Hurricane Iniki.

In 2017, thanks to on-going community support, The Salvation Army served more than 4,400 people across Kauai through providing basic needs assistance, emergency disaster services, youth and senior programs, food distribution, holiday assistance, and spiritual services.


Leading with a heart to serve

Comprised of 34 members, The Salvation Army Echelon Hawaii board of young professionals are passionate about helping their community. This year, Echelon set a strategic plan to coordinate back-to-school drives, clothing drives, and professional development events throughout the year to engage the community in giving back to those in need. Echelon served 820 people on Oahu through various ways such as back to school drives and homeless outreach.

Echelon started the “Red Pencil Project,” an initiative to serve local keiki in need through providing school supplies. This project was able to serve a total of 220 disadvantaged students at Kauluwela Elementary School, Likelike Elementary School, and Waialua Elementary School.

“Through Echelon, we have the opportunity to engage, listen, and take what we learn from one another and apply that to our own responsibilities and team,” said Jennifer Oyer, Chief Development Officer of The Salvation Army. “We can be a catalyst for change by breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty, homelessness, and hunger by going beyond the traditional boundaries and raise money to do more good. We don’t want to just be better leaders. We want to be better people.”

Our History

123 Years of Service in the Islands

Thousands of immigrants were pouring into Hawaii to work in the plantations in the 1890s. Christian men and women realized the serious need for a “spiritual organization with a social aim” to work with the young and old of all nationalities in Hawaii. At the request of Central Union Church, the first contingent of Salvationists came to Hawaii in 1894. Five devoted and earnest workers, led by Staff Captain John Milsaps, arrived in Hawaii ready to face the challenges ahead.

The first Salvation Army hall was located in downtown Honolulu at 1680 South King Street. In the late 1890s, Dr. Theodore Richards gave The Army a building in the Vineyard and River Street section of Honolulu to center its activities. Today, that same location is used as part of the Kauluwela Mission Corps.

By November 1894, The Salvation Army established its work in Hilo on the Island of Hawaii. Within the next three years, The Army was established on Maui and Kauai as well. Today, The Salvation Army has grown into a well-established and comprehensive network of social services and religious programs in Hawaii, Guam, Saipan, the Republic of Marshall Islands, and the Federated States of Micronesia, serving thousands of men, women, and children each year.

"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."
Galatians 6:9
