"Dan is working to support the families of Lana‘i"

The back of the endorsement card:

Senator Inouye envisioned the Lana‘i Project to provide targeted activities and educational opportunities for young people.

Since its inception, more than $1 million has been invested and over 650 young people assisted. Successful programs include culinary training, upgrades to the Maui Community College computer lab, firefighter, emergency response and healthcare worker training, and trades training programs to address the shortage of carpenters, electricians, plumbers and auto mechanics on the island.

Senator Inouye also championed investments in support of safe places and activities for children. A federal appropriation to the Lana‘i Youth Center doubled its space and its ability to serve more young people and keep them drug and alcohol free.

And now, the Lana‘i Community Health Center is the newest to join the statewide federal network – their staff working hard to become fully operational – thanks to funding secured by Senator Inouye.
