Hauʻula Community Association provides programs with volunteer support and grant funding
Hauʻula Emergency Leadership Preparedness
HOH created a disaster plan and volunteer team to implement it for Hau'ula. The team developed the plan and work with the City DEM and the State in quarterly cross-island networking meetings with other communities. The team prepositioned emergency supplies for the community. The City and State officials said that when a disaster strikes Hau'ula will be on its own for 7-14 days or longer. The team meets monthly and is creating a Neighborhood Captain program in all 87 neighborhoods in Hau'ula.
What you can do for yourself, your family and your community
HAU'ULA NEIGHBORHOOD SECURITY WATCH
Volunteers support this program by walking the community and working with the police to support safety, security and crime prevention in Hauʻula. The community is concerned about safety and security, drug problems and prostitution. Volunteers meet twice a month with police and community members to work together to educate community members about how to be safe and take action when they see problems by calling 911.

Aloha ʻAina EDventures
A FREE Saturday activity and sometimes a field trip to learn how to malama ʻaina (take care of the earth from Mauka to Makai, mountain to ocean).
4-6th grade students can participate by emailing us. We take reservations for each activity, see a list below of the Aloha ʻAina EDventures planned for 2019!
Aloha ʻAina EDventures are funded by the North Shore Ocean Fest! Be sure to check out the FREE annual community, details below.
North Shore Ocean Fest
The North Shore Ocean Fest is an Annual event the first Saturday in June, celebrating World Oceans Day at Turtle Bay Resort. 2019 is our 8th Ocean Fest to raise awareness about the need to malama the ocean & its wildlife and to raise funds to support the Aloha ʻAina EDventure activities for K-12 students from Waialua to Kahaluu.
Ocean Fest serves as an amazing FREE one-day event to raise awareness about why and how we can take care of the ocean and its wildlife. Ocean Fest is planned and implemented by over 100 volunteers each year.
Maunawila Heiau, purchased with funding from the City and State, is now held in trust by the Hawaiian Island Land Trust (HILT). Maunawila Heiau is located in Hau'ula.
HOH services include: Over 1500 volunteers supported cleanup days this year, created a curriculum for the students to learn them about Maunawila, and created a display of artifacts in the Hau'ula Civic Center office, became docents and created new trails at the 9 acre site. We believe It is important for our children to learn about their place, its role in history and how important it is in Hawaiian culture.
There are stewardship activities the 2nd Saturday of each month. Meet in the Hauʻula Community Park parking lot (next to Hauʻula Elementary School) and walk to the entrance on Homestead Road.
Don't forget to bring: Water, gloves, bug spray and closed toe shoes. Hand clippers if possible, we often pull weeds and plant native plants. This Heiau is a "healing Heiau" so the goal is to replant the native medicinal plants!
