Undertaking large-scale change begins when a small group of committed individuals with a shared vision enlists leaders to catalyze resources and reaches out to potential allies, including those whose voices currently go unheard. It is only by building effective coalitions across sectors and throughout communities that meaningful progress can occur. The power of partnerships enables better alignment and results for all of Hawai‘i’s people.

HCF has mobilized a movement to create lasting change for Hawaii’s people thanks to the capabilities of its indispensable partners.
