"I do not believe there is one person in North Kohala that has not been affected positively by the work of the Resource Center"

Jon Adams

"In an exceptional show of unity and cooperation, U.S. Department of Agricultural Rural Development has awarded a $2 million grant, through the Community Facilities Grant Program to the North Kohala Community Resource Center to repair the badly damaged Kohala Ditch on the Big Island of Hawaii".

Lorraine P. Shin

Rural Development Director, U.S Agricultural Department, Hawaii

"I have been so excited to be a part of the visionary work of NKCRC! They have allowed me the freedom to develop my vision, the nurturing to stay on task and find funders and the guidance to help make my project something that can benefit the community into the future. Mahalo!"

Nelson Denman

"It is so reassuring for me to know that when things outside my area of expertise come-up, that I may turn to North Kohala Community Resource Center for guidance and assistance. It's not realistic for a project coordinator to know everything. North Kohala Community Resource Center takes the time to research the information that I need to know to run things in the right way. They are also so encouraging and supportive. I always feel stronger when I leave their office. I feel like, "I can keep going with this project, even though it is challenging. I am not alone in my endeavors to enhance the quality of life for my community."

"The Resource Center was integral in the successful foundation of our nonprofit organization by providing a place to incubate our project, teaching proposal writing and researching skills and providing support to keep the project on track through all the challenges to its successful fledging. Mahalo nui loa NKCRC!”

"The Kohala Cheer and Dance Club in association with the Kohala Chargers Pop Warner Cheerleaders would like to thank the NKCRC for all their hard work and strong commitment to the youth of North Kohala."

"The North Kohala Community Resource Center enabled the North Kohala Food Forum to raise funds for a really productive community conversation on food self-sufficiency. In my opinion, the NKCRC is the most valuable organization in the community, because it supports all of the other organizations and projects!"
