Kōkua Mau is our state’s Movement to Improve Care. As a community benefit organization, our purpose is to improve quality of life for people living in Hawai‘i by promoting excellence in hospice, end of life, palliative care, and early advanced care planning through the provision of:
- Public and professional education
- Development of professional and organizational healthcare capacity
- Advocacy and public policy
- Workplace Wellness Programs
- Statewide leadership
- Promotion and fostering of a collaborative membership
Kōkua Mau Members show their commitment to this purpose through collaboration, support, guidance, and active participation in Kōkua Mau activities and strategic goals.
Our membership strives to support, collaborate, and assist each other in the primary purpose of improving quality of life for people in Hawai‘i.
Levels of Membership
Organizational are encouraged to join at the Hōkūle‘a, Leadership or Advocate level. Alternatively, membership is determined by an employee head count.

Kōkua Mau: Your Partner for Advance Care Planning
More businesses and organizations are recognizing the importance of equipping their employees and others with sound information on Advance Care Planning (ACP). Employees need advice from a trusted, objective resource to make sound decisions when a family member is facing critical end-of-life care decisions. It is a situation that touches everyone at some point. Kōkua Mau can be your valuable partner to initiate this planning process. Download the PDF file with details.
