A special message from NCA Board president, Aunty Madie Greene
Aloha kakou members of Nanawale Community!
These past months, during this COVID-19 pandemic, the Nanawale Community Association Board and Staff have taken enormous precautions to assure the safety of everyone we serve in the community.
Our Recreation Coordinator, Aaron Ferreira, has opened our pool for use (by appointment only) and also oversees a Mobile Learning Lab for Keikis. Our Maintenance Supervisor, Steve Fleming, has repaired all of our machinery and is now working on our septic system. We welcomed three newly elected Board members and recently, Allison Barrett, as our new General Manager who with the staff coordinated a successful Halloween drive thru. (Approximately 300 bags of candy were given out!)
Our Outreach for Homes Committee has made great progress on dealing with squatters and illegal structures and works closely with our Neighborhood Watch Patrol and Community Police Officer, Eddie Cardines.
Currently the Board is working on several projects such as updating and amending the CC&R's and By-Laws, getting bids on road improvement projects and working with community members to develop programs to meet the needs within our neighborhood, such as our upcoming garden-oriented activities.
Over the past four months, Kanaka Ha'aheo (formerly known as the Bodacious Women of Pahoa) has held a monthly food Pantry (supported by the Food Basket) as well as weekly "Feed the People" events (sponsored by Councilwoman Ashley Kierkiewicz) and "Burrito in a Bowl" Fridays (co-sponsored by Janice Ikeda and Vibrant Hawaii). Mahalo to Captain Aaron and the Kanaka Ha'aheo team for taking this on.
We are doing as much as we can during this pandemic situation to assist our community in time of need.
I bid you Peace, Joy and a safe Holiday!
Madie Greene, President

Homelessness can have lifelong negative developmental and health impacts on a child. Children who experience homelessness are more vulnerable to child abuse and neglect. The longer a child remains homeless, the more bleak the outcome. Children raised in persistent poverty, including periods of homelessness, are less likely to finish school. They are at higher risk for incarceration, teen pregnancy/parenthood, substance abuse, and a life of poverty.
