Ho’ōla Nā Pua (New Life for Our Children) was founded to shine light on the dark criminal enterprise of sex trafficking, placing the health of Hawaii’s youth at the center of our mission and vision for our community. We are committed to the prevention of sex trafficking and providing care for children who have been exploited. Ho’ōla Nā Pua (HNP) is dedicated to creating a community where children are safe and have the ability to embrace their bright futures. Today, not only does HNP offer integrated programming that reaches over thousands of youth and community members and stakeholders across the state of Hawaii annually, but is considered a national partner and a rising standard in the global effort to stop sex trafficking, permanently.

The dedicated six-part HI Now daily series begins today, Monday, July 25th through July 30th, uncovering the staggering truths about child sex-trafficking in the islands highlighting Ho’ōla Nā Pua’s progressive response to ‘shine the light’ on exploitation in Hawaii while providing trauma-informed care to victims and at-risk youth.
