Aloha mai kākou, 

Photo of Robert N.E. Piper, Esq., MBAHonolulu Community Action Program Inc., or HCAP as we are more commonly known, has been proudly serving the communities of Oʻahu since 1965. We are resolute in achieving our mission of POI: Providing Opportunities and Inspiration to enable low-income individuals or families to achieve self-reliance. We, at HCAP, believe that everyone should have the opportunity to contribute – to the best of their capabilities – and share in our society’s social and economic well-being and prosperity.

Our nation, state and island communities are dealing with unprecedented challenges. Notwithstanding these challenges, HCAP remains committed to its mission, and we will stand firm in our support of those in need in our community. Abandonment of our communities’ needs during these tough times will never be an option.

We will achieve an end to poverty by working collaboratively within our community, with our clients, with our partner agencies and organizations, and with our Federal, State and local governmental partners. Collectively, we will all rise in the same tide. Our dedicated Board of Directors, driven staff, and tireless volunteers continue to perform the necessary tasks to help address the concerns of our communities.

Mahalo piha,

Robert N.E. Piper, Esq., MBA
HCAP Executive Director
