"There are heroes who walk among us
never looking for glory or praise
They don't seek recognition
for their thoughtful, caring ways.
Living lives of deep commitment
providing for those they hold dear
Steadfast with a quiet strength
through times of laughter and tears.
You are persons like that to me
The most selfless people by far
So Na Hoaloha, I'd like to thank you
For being the HEROES that you are."

With deep gratitude,

Ellen S.

We so appreciate you and your staff for sending us such a wonderful volunteer. Christine came into our home with a spark that we shall not soon forget. She immediately bonded with my mother in matters of family, spiritual beliefs and love of life.

Such a loving, congenial and competent person as Christine was a God-send to a wheelchair bound 92 year old. Many of my errands were delayed so that I too could enjoy Christine's enthusiasm and overall goodness.

This friendship will always be fondly remembered with sincere appreciation.

My parents have appreciated and enjoyed your volunteer services of being able to go riding and out to lunch with your volunteers. They have been so kind to volunteer their time and day so that my parents might be able to get out of the house one more day a week than I can take them out.

I am not able to take them riding every day and they have so enjoyed their outings since they can no longer drive. We so appreciate your organization!

My volunteer drives me about six times a month. He takes me to Walmart, Safeway, the doctor and the airport. He even takes me to a Haiku cemetery sometimes. This service helps me big time to maintain my independence. It also helps with my overall health, mental, physical and what I eat. It relieves me of the need to beg the children. It gives me peace of mind. My volunteer is very courteous. He gets straight A's !

Without a doubt, your services are helping me maintain my sanity I live alone with my 89 year old mother. My wife is away being a Christian missionary. During the week when I work, I have a private caregiver which is costing me a lot. “My shift” starts right after work, and I care for mom from 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. My only break is when your services kick in on Saturday and Sunday for 4 hours. Mahalo nui loa. P.S. Maile is great !

My volunteers take me to the doctor and shopping. Sometimes we go out to lunch together. I recently had an MRI and I was afraid. Both my volunteers came with me and waited outside and took me to lunch afterward.

They were so concerned and wanted to wait there while I was in the machine because they knew I was afraid. They both worried about me.

I give them A+++. We have developed a lovely friendship. Sometimes they just come by and drop mangoes at my door.

My phone was out of order so I called the phone company repair service, but they sent someone out when I was not at home. I called again the next two days, but they never came back out.

My regular volunteer calls me once a day to check on me to make sure I'm okay. When she couldn't reach me, she reported it to the NA HOALOHA office. So they sent another volunteer to check on me. He used his cell phone to call the phone company to say I that I am a disabled person and had been without phone service for three days.

The phone company technician came out that same afternoon. The next day the volunteer called to make sure the phone company had fixed the problem.

NA HOALOHA is filled with terrific people!

My wife and I are caregivers for my mother. We came into this unaware of what was in store. After months of never being able to leave the house together we found help.

Neighbors Helping Neighbors made my mother's life so much better and also gave me and my wife a break. Your program was a gift that blessed three lives. MAHALO!

I am the only active family member participating in my sister’s care. She is disabled with early onset Alzheimer’s disease.

This program gave me a much/and long overdue respite relief and support. It recharged my soul with a sense of community and that we all need to take in a constant flow of giving and receiving. I was also informed of other programs/support groups to continue on my journey.

Na Hoaloha is a wonderful organization! And I thank YOU.

I am the sole caregiver for my grandmother and my mother. Every Monday for two hours I get help. A Na Hoaloha volunteer watches my family members so I can have a break away from the 24 hour 7 day per week care I give.

For these two hours I forget my responsibilities and let my body and head take a break. Sometimes I walk, or go to a movie, go to the store, or to the doctor, but those two hours are mine. And it recharges my senses and relieves my stress.

I feel safe and comfortable with my volunteer caring for my family. She is always upbeat, on time, professional and especially good natured. Thank you Na Hoaloha for this help!
