HOPE Services Hawaii is the perfect place for organizations and groups to cultivate team building! We are a registered 501(c)3, so donations are tax deductible and there are many creative, fun ways your group can help HOPE with financial contributions and support a program of your choice.

Ways Groups Have Helped HOPE

Organized a holiday event/dinner/ bake sale benefitting one of our programs.

Organized a drive at their school, place of work, or with friends and family! (For example, obtaining hygiene supplies, school supplies, or new toys to give to our homeless keiki during Christmas or birthdays.)

Provided a family with move-in supplies for a new home, paid for hot showers for a month, or for meals for a child for a week.

Some of our Kūpuna have even started a reading group for our younger keiki. Be creative!

Group Requirements

 A minimum of 4 people.

A completed HOPE Volunteer Application for each person. Minors will also need a signature from a parent or guardian.

Attend an Orientation (approximately 1 hour) Complete application form with 2 references.

Willing to make a minimum of a 3-month commitment.

Volunteers are required to submit a TB test or chest x-ray, valid within the last year.

Is your group interested in volunteering? Email us at to request an application. Corporate Social Responsibility opportunities are also available.

Occasionally, we may accept individual volunteers who have a special skill (graphic design, job coaching etc) or are licensed professionals (medical professionals, barbers, massage therapists, etc). Because we are required to have a staff member supervise volunteers, we can only accept individual volunteers on a case by case basis. Mahalo for your understanding.
