KEY Project History


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

Old KEYSeveral ministers saw the need for an agency to serve low-income, at-risk youth in the semi-rural areas from Kualoa Point to Heeia. 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 consorted actions of its beneficiaries.

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 multi-cultural community.
