HHHRC is excited to welcome Trisha Kajimura back to the ῾ohana as our new deputy director. Trisha is a familiar face for many as she served as HIV Care Services Director of the Life Foundation from 2009-2012. Trisha has been working actively in the local non-profit sector since her time at Life Foundation, including as executive director of our close community partner Mental Health America of Hawai῾i. Trisha took her experiences at Life Foundation and everything she learned from our staff, partners and program participants to inform her work in advocating for underserved communities. The beliefs and practices of harm reduction have continued to guide her way.
Trisha is passionate about prioritizing the dignity and humanity of each person through the challenges of their individual journeys. She returns to Hawai῾i Health & Harm Reduction Center to support the expansion and practice of the tenets of harm reduction throughout the State of Hawai῾i.
Welcome home, Trisha. Our community continues to flourish with you at our side.
