In 1909, Queen Liliʻuokalani executed a Deed of Trust that established the legal and financial foundation of an institution dedicated to the welfare of orphaned and destitute children of Hawaii. Over 100 years later, we continue to be inspired by the Queen’s foresight, vision and values that serve as the foundation of our work.
The Trust is sustained and nurtured by careful and increasingly complex management conducted by a dedicated and competent corps of trustees, administrators, staff, and collaborative partners. This careful management of the Trust enables the Queen Liliʻuokalani Children’s Center to address and meet the needs of our Hawaiian children and families in a service strategy that is collaborative, holistic and culturally-based.
We believe the Queen would be proud of the manner in which her Trust is being managed, and the services her beneficiary children are receiving. She continues to inspire us by her timeless message: E ʻonipaʻa kākou! (Be steadfast, established, firm, resolute and determined.)
