Aloha and Welcome
Our Commission has proudly chosen “Serve Hawai‘i with Aloha” as our motto. Our programs and presence throughout Hawai‘i have grown, and we are very proud of the thousands of members that have worked diligently to make our state a better place to live. We are excited about our future, and we hope that our outreach will continue to add value and contribute to promoting community service and volunteerism throughout Hawai‘i.
Through this mission, the Commission’s primary role is to provide resources and leadership to support local initiatives that tackle community needs. As the state service commission, HCNCS will direct effective AmeriCorps national service programs, disability inclusion initiatives, training opportunities and volunteer service recognition awards to gain a specific set of results that meet predetermined performance outcomes. The Commission makes grants; develops partnerships in collaboration with other agencies, foundations, community organizations and state, local governments; facilitates sharing of online resources to nonprofits; provides leadership in volunteerism and service; and ensures the quality of member and recipient experiences and continued involvement.
