Employment Program Assists Individuals in Finding Jobs

Photo of Employment Core Participant
Tiffany first came to the Central District Service Center to earn a Hawaii Adult Community School Diploma. She attended and passed several units before deciding to take a break from the program and find full-time employment. Through the assistance of the Na Lima Hana Employment Core Services Program, Tiffany obtained employment at Action with Aloha as a receptionist.

She is one of the first program participants to celebrate sixty days of employment. When asked what she liked most about the program, she replied, “Their efficiency, HCAP accommodates their client’s needs and always makes sure they are taken care of.” Tiffany has not given up hope of earning her diploma and is looking forward to furthering her education. Tiffany’s long-term career goal is to obtain the training she will need to become a Nurse and continue helping people.

HCAP would like to congratulate Tiffany on her achievements. We also want to thank Action with Aloha for working with HCAP to provide employment opportunities for participants of the Na Lima Hana Employment Core Services Program.

The Central District Service Center collaborated with Chinen & Arinaga Financial Group and 4 Moanalua Complex schools to collect 434 shoeboxes filled with donated items. The contents of the shoeboxes included a wide variety of hygiene products, clothes for women, men, and children, as well as toys and canned goods. The Central District Service Center along with the Kalihi-Palama District Service Center and the Leeward District Service Center will distribute the shoeboxes to homeless families and individuals in the community. HCAP greatly appreciates the continued support of our community partners.
