(page 4 of 10)

Family Promise of Hawaii

This organization helps motivated families with children settle into homes. Families are provided assistance in escaping homelessness and given household items they might need once they have a place to live, such as beds, kitchenware and bathroom items.

How to Help: Family Promise of Hawaii is open 365 days a year, so on-call volunteers are needed to help out with office tasks. Volunteers should be good with people and enjoy spending time around children.

How to Give: Donations to the organization go towards purchasing necessities for living, like diapers, hygiene items and furniture, as well as the organization’s overhead. Household items can also be donated directly. Family Promise of Hawaii, 69 N. Kainalu Dr., Kailua, HI 96734, 261-7478, familypromisehawaii.org.

Alzheimer’s Association Aloha Chapter

This organization provides support for those affected by Alzheimer’s disease, through support groups and educational workshops. They also create awareness about the disease, advocate public policy and conduct research aimed to reduce the risk of dementia and eliminate Alzheimer’s.

How to Help: Volunteers are wanted for special events, fundraisers, health fairs and conferences. Dependable volunteers with computer experience are needed in the office, and those comfortable with public speaking may opt to give public presentations for the organization. Support group facilitators are also needed to help caregivers or family members cope with the effects of the disease.

How to Give: About 80 percent of all donations stay in the Aloha Chapter, funding support groups, workshops, events and the printing of brochures. The remainder is directed to the national Alzheimer’s Association, to conduct research on disease prevention and treatment.
