About The Woman's Board Of Missions For The Pacific Islands
The Woman's Board of Missions for the Pacific Islands is a group of compassionate Christian women who come from a variety of churches and diverse backgrounds to reach out in many practical ways to those in need, especially women and children, providing financial support both in Hawai'i and abroad. The ministry of our organization was founded in 1871 and is affiliated with the United Church of Christ.
Governed by an unwavering faith and core values of competence, compassion, character, and community, our purpose is to inspire and empower women to become active Christians, nurturing the Spirit in their individual lives, homes, community and the entire world, to educate and encourage children in their highest potential, and to be in partnership with sister organizations sharing similar values.
The Woman's Board of Missions for the Pacific Islands has supported numerous projects and organizations that include but are not limited to the UCCP Pasuquin Learning Center, a preschool in the Philippines, the UCC Transition House, a safe house for women and their children who are survivors of Domestic Violence, the Women's Community Correctional Center in Hawai'i, ZOE International, an organization that rescues children from human trafficking, and the Waikiki Youth Outreach Center, an outreach service providing hot meals, clothing, medical care, and basic necessities for our homeless youth.
Additionally, our organization grants annual gifts to women who attend seminary through the Mother Alice Fund, gifts for mission endeavors in Micronesia, through the Micronesia Missionary Memorial Fund, one-time financial gifts to meet a special need of individuals or families through The Family Thank Offering, and scholarships for women and children throughout the Pacific through the Edith H. Wolfe Fund.
As the needs of our communities and world continue to increase exponentially, more resources and willing servants are required to help meet these needs.
