Wounded Warrior Ohana

Since 2014, the 501 (c)(3) nonprofit Wounded Warrior O’hana has provided enriching experiences for our wounded and injured military members, veterans and their families. We support high-quality events that contribute to the overall health, safety and enjoyment of our wounded military veterans and their families.

Our Mission

To honor and remember those who sacrificed so much for so many.

The program will include grants for things such as a repair or replacement of appliances, Home or car repair, making a home Handicap accessible, education support such as books or other related needs, handicap vans or other forms of transportation. This program was established to fill a hole that no Government agency private Veterans organization currently does in the state of Hawaii.
