NHLC believes that justice should be accessible to all, regardless of ability to pay, and that all Native Hawaiians deserve to have their rights protected to live in Hawai’i, maintain their pilina to place and community, and perpetuate their traditional and customary practice. Indeed, in most years at least 50% of NHLC’s clients meet the federal financial guidelines for indigency and many more are modest means and part of the ALICE (asset limited, income constrained, employed) population in Hawai’i.
As a non-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable legal services provider, NHLC’s work is enabled by the generosity of the communities we serve and the many donors that believe in our mission. NHLC is grateful for the donors that allow us to continue our nearly 50 years of work, steadfastly standing for a just and pono Hawai’i.
