40th Anniversary Recap

We are elated to share the joyous celebration of Hawaiʻi Health & Harm Reduction Center's 40th anniversary—a remarkable evening that epitomized our journey of compassion, resilience, and commitment to the community. Hosted graciously by the Church of the Crossroads, this milestone event was a testament to the unwavering support and dedication of numerous individuals and organizations.


First and foremost, our heartfelt gratitude extends to our esteemed sponsors whose generosity and support made this celebration possible: Aloha Care, Gilead, Servco, Hula's Bar and Lei Stand, JABSOM, Kaimana Hotel, HMSA, Solutions Pacific, 5 Minute Pharmacy, QMC, Kaiser Permanente, First Hawaiian Bank, Ward Research, and Drug Policy Forum. Your unwavering commitment to our cause has been the cornerstone of our success.


As we reflected on this incredible journey, we couldn’t help but acknowledge the visionaries who laid the foundation for this organization. Dr. David McEwan and Jack Law, our founders, embarked on an extraordinary journey of harm reduction, paving the way for compassion-driven healthcare initiatives that have touched countless lives.


A special appreciation goes out to Cinnamons for providing the delectable food that tantalized our taste buds and to Rebecca Soon, an esteemed HHHRC Board member, for her sponsorship of the open bar, fostering an atmosphere of camaraderie and celebration.


One of the highlights of the evening was the premiere of the Life Foundation Documentary, skillfully crafted by the award-winning filmmaker Alex Bocchieri. This poignant documentary encapsulates the essence of our mission, showcasing the impact and transformative journey of the Hawai'i Health & Harm Reduction Center.


This celebration was a testament to the power of unity, compassion, and resilience in fostering positive change within our community. We are immensely grateful to everyone who has been a part of this incredible journey. Your unwavering support fuels our commitment to continue our mission of harm reduction and community wellness.


As we step into the future, we carry with us the spirit of compassion and the determination to make a lasting difference in the lives of those we serve.
