Waikiki Community Center
A GREAT PLACE FOR YOU TO GROW!
So far, this year, we've learned poke-making from a local chef, harvested fresh vegetables from a small local farm, and went on a trip down memory lane with a live music concert!
There are so many exciting classes, informative presentations, and fun excursions coming up. If you become a registered WCC participant, you'll get access to discounts and early-bird notices.
CHANGE THE FIRST FIVE YEARS, CHANGE EVERYTHING
Helping Children Succeed
The first five years of a child’s life are critical for setting the foundations for lifelong health, learning and success. WCC Early Education Program provides keiki with quality, whole-child experiences to put our youngest learners on a path to succeed in school and beyond. We also focus on family engagement and learning, which research shows is critical to keiki future success and well-being.
We believe every child should have the opportunity to succeed. WCC is stepping up support for families as many of their incomes have been impacted by COVID-19. Before the pandemic 89% of our families were low-to-moderate income.

TOUCHING THE LIVES OF KUPUNA
During the pandemic, we strove to support our Kupuna more than ever with these services
FOOD SECURITY - Providing thousands of hot meals and bags of groceries to seniors in need and helping them transition to more permanent food sources.
SENIOR SAFE RIDE - We’re helping seniors who no longer feel safe on public transportation and are not able to pay for rides to access food, basic supplies and medical care.
TECH SAAVY SENIORS - Our Virtual Community Center, kupuna tech training and iPad lending library are opening new worlds for isolated seniors.
HELPING SENIORS IN NEED - We continue coordinating services and resources for hundreds of seniors in need and/or in critical situations. This crucial service is in more demand than ever.
COMMUNITY: WE'RE #STRONGERTOGETHER!
At Waikīkī Community Center, we mobilize our community to make a difference. We built a coalition of individuals, churches, businesses, schools, other nonprofits and government agencies that addresses issues important to our community such as disaster preparedness and pedestrian safety.
Since COVID-19, demand for our Emergency Food Pantry has increased by almost 400%.
