About Us

Our goal is to help children in Hawai`i to grow up in safe, nurturing environments.

Neighborhood Place of Kona is a community based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving families in West Hawai`i communities since 1997. Through partnerships with public and private agencies and groups, Neighborhood Place of Kona has become a Pu`uhonua (place of safety and peace) where all families are welcome.

In a supportive, non-judgmental, culturally sensitive, compassionate atmosphere, Neighborhood Place of Kona focuses on the well-being of children and families.

We provide Family Strengthening Services that help each family address their needs. Our caring staff will work directly with your family to promote healthy parent-child relationships.

We do this through increasing knowledge of child development, improving parenting and coping skills, and enhancing problem-solving abilities through a “Talk Story” approach.

The mission of Neighborhood Place of Kona is to ensure the wellbeing of children and their families by promoting environments of peace and safety.

Neighborhood Place of Kona is part of Friends of the Future, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
