About us


Hoʻōla Nā Pua is committed to providing a nurturing home that meets the unique needs of underage female sex trafficking victims through the utilization of individualized, comprehensive, and restorative therapies.


Our vision is to provide girls who are rescued or have escaped from sex trafficking with a safe home, a path to restoration and healing from their trauma, an increased sense of self-worth, and the confidence and ability to successfully reintegrate into their families and the community.

Our Approach:

Hoʻōla Nā Pua's fourfold approach to addressing sex trafficking in Hawaii includes:

  1. Rescue and Restoration – providing a long-term licensed residential facility for underage sexually exploited females 
  2. Education and Awareness – promoting community awareness about the issue
  3. Decreasing Demand – supporting legislation that protects our keiki
  4. Limiting Supply – conducting school awareness, prevention, and outreach programs

Our volunteers work tirelessly, networking and collaborating with political figures, the justice system, social services, faith-based communities, state licensing institutions, foundations, health care professionals, and other community members in Hawaii who share our mission to improve the lives of these underage victims. We are an active member of the Hawaii Coalition Against Human Trafficking Task Force.

Currently, Hoʻōla Nā Pua is the only organization in Hawaii working to build a long-term licensed residential facility of this kind.

We are a Hawaii-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
