Our History

“Hana Mana” is Hawaiian for miracle: a wonderful event attributed to supernatural powers

Formerly Hospice Charities of America, the Hana Mana Foundation launched in April 2018 and seeks to continue the charitable intent of it’s founder and current board members. The Hana Mana Foundation partners with several Hospice Centers on the continental United States and in the Hawaiian Islands of Oahu and Maui. The Hana Mana Foundation is supported both through generous donations from families who have had a loved one in the care of one of our partner Hospice Centers and the charitable contributions of its Hawaiian based Hospice partner, Islands Hospice.

Islands Hospice is a nonprofit, faith-based Hospice Center that brings care, compassion and comfort to people facing life-limiting illnesses and to those grieving the loss of a loved one. Founded in 2008, Islands Hospice’s mission is to provide the highest quality, comprehensive hospice care focused on serving the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of terminally ill patients and their loved ones. Simply put, Islands Hospice walks with those in their final chapter of life and helps them write the ending to their story in physical comfort and peaceful dignity.
