Behind the scenes of the Hamakua Youth Center, as with any non-profit organization, there is a lot of sweat and a few tears as we work to keep the center viable for the needs of our keiki. We are ever grateful for the many who step forward to give of their time, talents and means to keep the center open and functioning.
