Key Initiatives

Hauʻula Community Association provides programs with volunteer support and grant funding


Hauʻula Emergency Leadership Preparedness

Contact: Dotty Kelly-Paddock at

HCA’s HELP team created a disaster plan and volunteer teams for Hau'ula. The HELP  team  works with the City and County of Honolulu Department of Emergency Management (DEM) and the State in quarterly cross-island networking meetings with other Oahu communities.


HELP has prepositioned emergency supplies for the community and established an Emergency Command Center.  City and State officials tell us that when a disaster strikes, Hau'ula will be on its own for 30 days or longer. 

HELP has the following teams that support the overall plan for community resilience. Join one today!

Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Team

Medical Assistance Team

Tsunami Evacuation Team

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

Neighborhood Block Captains

  • Maunawila Menehunes

  • Summer Youth Educational Internships 

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. Contact Rebekah Walker at to see how you can participate!

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!
