Akau Hana provides community outreach through a working relationship with local organizations serving able-bodied as well as disabled persons, mentally sound or challenged, or culturally disadvantaged children and adults. This includes schools, churches, city and county agencies, and other agencies. Through our outreach programs, we promote cross cultural respect, environmental awareness and clean water activities. We continue to cultivate and maintain working relationships with organizations serving persons with and without physical or mental disabilities.

(To read a nice article about Akau Hana's participation in the 2005 Shared Adventures: A Day on the Beach, read the Santa Cruz Sentinel opinion piece, Happiness and the power of altruism.)
