About KEY Project

Our Mission

The mission of KEY Project is to nurture and promote the cultural, environmental, social, economic, and recreational well-being of the Kualoa-He’eia area by providing a vital grassroots civic resource that effectively serves the needs of our diverse multicultural community.

We are proud to serve Koʻolau-Heʻeia families, from keiki to kūpuna, through a variety of programs and services that we support in collaboration with our community.

Kualoa-Heʻeia Ecumenical Youth (KEY) Project was founded in 1968 through the efforts of churches, community residents, and social service agencies.


Several ministers saw the need for an agency to serve low-income, at-risk youth in the semi-rural areas from Kualoa Point to Heʻeia. Equipped with funding and support from the Episcopal, Methodist, and Catholic churches along with private trusts and foundations, these community leaders accepted the responsibility of caring for the youth in their community. KEY Project is a rarity in that it was initiated, built, and sustained by the love, determination, and concerted actions of its beneficiaries. Over time, KEY Project has expanded service to a wide spectrum of community members from keiki to kūpuna, and from individual members to large organizations who regularly enjoy using KEY Project facilities for their programs and gatherings.
