Building Independence for Challenged Lives
Lanakila Pacific is a non-profit organization that builds independence for thousands of people living challenged lives. We are a family of programs and services that enable adults with disabilities, ranging from cognitive, physical and age-related challenges, to reach their goals and potential, while building independence and promoting community inclusion. Our organization serves and benefits over 2,000 people annually, right here in our own community.
Our programs include Lanakila Meals on Wheels, aiding seniors island-wide, Teaching and Learning Centers, an education program that mimics a college-like structure and Workforce Resources, a hands-on job training program.
Our services have expanded and is our move towards financial sustainability. They include Lanakila Kitchen, which provides all of the meals for Lanakila Meals on Wheels, as well as offering school meal catering and event catering services, delivering island-wide. We have Lanakila Maintenance Services, offering first-rate grounds maintenance and custodial options for your business. And Lanakila Custom Products, offering products, apparel and gifts customized to fit your logo, brand or event!
We believe it is the right of every person to live life to the fullest, reach the goals set for oneself and meet their potential. We advocate for people with disabilities for inclusion within the community as a whole.
We are Hawaii-based and serve the entire Oahu community, but we aren’t stopping here; we’ve extended our helpful programs and services to people living challenged lives with the Grand Opening of Lanakila Kitchen Kauai in November of 2011! Visit the Lanakila Kitchen Kauai crew in Lawai, next to the Menehune Mart in the old Mark’s Place.
We rely on people like you to help us reach our goals! We are a volunteer and donation driven organization and we couldn’t do it without you. We have over one hundred volunteers that help daily. They execute our meal packaging and delivery program for the elderly, teach special classes and help prepare our participants for job interviews.
We welcome healthy non-perishable food and monetary donations of all amounts. And by using one of our services, the proceeds help fund our programs! We’re all about synergy!
Mahalo for your interest in Lanakila Pacific! We hope you’ll get involved!
