Kaʻu Rural Health Community Association, Inc.

 Kaʻu Rural Health Community Association, Inc. (KRHCAI) is a community-based membership 501 (c) 3 tax exempt non-profit charitable organization which evolved as a direct result of a community “grassroots” coalition to preserve access to quality healthcare in rural communities.  In 1998, the “grassroots” coalition was successful in keeping Kaʻu hospital’s 24-hour emergency room services open.  The coalition formally established KRHCAI as a community-based membership organization and received its 501 (c)3 status in November, 1998.

Our purpose is to support and promote community empowerment, capacity building, collaborative partnerships and a healthy community by focusing on Health, Education, Research Opportunities and Economic Sustainability (HEROES).

    Hello Auntie Jessie,

    Please let me know if we are confirmed to attend. We will probably need two tables because of different departments attending.
