HCFCU is a leading financial institution dedicated to serving the communities of Hawaii Island, continues its commitment to supporting kupuna by furnishing a comfortable living space at the Sacred Heart Affordable Housing Project in Pahoa. 

"We are proud to be part of this collaborative effort that prioritizes the well-being of our kupuna," said Tricia Buskirk, CEO and President at HCFCU. "This project reflects our ongoing dedication to enhancing the lives of our elderly community members." 

Originally targeted for a December 2020 move-in, the project faced delays due to challenges stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, extending the completion date to November 2023. HCFCU, a longstanding partner of HOPE Services, participated in a  home design contest held by HOPE Services, inviting local organizations to decorate and furnish homes within the project. 

"Our partnership with HOPE Services underscores our commitment to providing dignified spaces for these important members of our community," noted Buskirk. "Our goal is to ensure kupuna have a sense of belonging and security in their new home."

The history between HOPE Services spans several years, with HCFCU designating HOPE as their triennial beneficiary. From 2019 - 2021, HCFCU raised over $82K to support the organization's various initiatives. In continuation of this partnership, HCFCU pledged to sponsor a home at the Sacred Heart Affordable Housing Project. 

HCFCU remains steadfast in its commitment to supporting the local community and ensuring the well-being of its elderly members.
