“We want all Hawai`i Island residents
to acquire the knowledge and skills
necessary to take control of their
financial health and well-being. The
ability to save, to invest in education, to
obtain affordable housing or start a
business—in short, investing in the
success of island people—is what
moves families ahead.”
