Hoʻōla Nā Pua began intensive cleaning of the Pearl Haven Site in October 2015. There is so much to be done, but we are making great progress thanks to the hard work of our incredible fleet of volunteers.
It was only a little less than a year between the future site of Pearl Haven being unoccupied to Hoʻōla Nā Pua being granted the property. That is all it took, though, for vandals to tear the place apart. Yet it is nothing that dedication, determination, and a large dose of sweat cannot overcome. A mess will not keep up from opening Hawaiʻi’s first home and treatment center for victims of underage sex-trafficking.
Below are a few pictures from the clean up days this past month.
Many have expressed interest in helping with our site clean up. Due to the security of the site, however, we only allow some of those who have been screened by our volunteer process to accompany us to the site. If you are interested in becoming one of our dedicated volunteers, you can start here.
