Investing In Education
Aside from the successful projects that North Kohala Community Resource Center supports, there have also been many organizational accomplishments that have marked milestones in NKCRCâ€™s growth and sustained its accountability.
NKCRC is a founding member of HANO, the Hawaii Alliance of Non-Profit Organizations and active in the Kohala Merchants Association. Both Christine Richardson, Executive Director and Treasurer, Bob Martin, have Professional Development Certificates in Non-Profit Organization Management from Kapiolani College as well as President, Chris Helmuth, and Vice President, Faye Mitchell.
