Hawaii opens immigrant resource centers
HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii officials are celebrating the opening of state-funded immigrant resource centers.
The Office of Community Services on Thursday announced opening celebrations that will take place at four centers on Oahu, Kauai and the Big Island. The office's Executive Director Mila Kaahanui says restoration of state-funded, comprehensive services for Hawaii's immigrant communities comes after two decades of gaps in services.
Gov. Neil Abercrombie says the centers will help immigrants achieve and maintain greater economic self-sufficiency and integration into Hawaii.
The Hilo celebration is scheduled for Oct. 24. Ewa Beach, Kalihi and Lihue celebrations will take place next month.
