On Thursday, October 22, 2015, HCAP held its annual Board of Directors Installation Dinner. Senator Suzanne Chun Oakland, Council Chair Ernie Martin, and Gary Nakata, Director of the Department of Community Services of the City and County of Honolulu were in attendance. Council Chair Martin shared a few words with the group, expressing his support for HCAP and the impact the organization has on the community. HCAP’s Chairman of the Board, Representative Isaac W. Choy and Vice Chair, Eddie Mersereau were unable to attend the event. HCAP Executive Director, Robert N.E. Piper thanked both men for their service to HCAP and the community.

In celebration of HCAP’s 50th Anniversary, HCAP shared a special segment titled, “HCAP: Helping People, Changing Lives.” HCAP clients and staff opened their hearts and shared their personal challenges and how HCAP helped them to achieve their dreams. We heard stories from Patti Beatty of the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP), Nanette Alvares of Kumuhonua Transitional Living Center, Lisa Leafa-Tavui of Head Start, and Geoffrey Labombard of Youth Services.

Everyone left the event feeling uplifted and inspired to continue working hard to improve our community.
