The Story of Hãnai

We all need a community. A sense of Ohana. In this chaotic and disconnected world, we are not meant to do this life alone. This is why Hãnai was born.

Hānai was created by Laveen locals as a place for you to connect with your community. Stop by for your morning coffee with a friend or a date night with your partner and experience becoming a part of our Ohana.

more than a business

We are more than a business—we are a social enterprise. Doing good for others is our priority.In Hawaiian culture, there is a deep commitment that it takes a village to raise a child. A person’s extended family, neighbor, or village is known as their Hãnai and steps in the gap for a child in need.

We are the Hãnai for the most vulnerable children in our community. A portion of all proceeds go to foster youth who are looking for their forever homes.

Hãnai also employs and mentors youth in the foster care system. Our focus is to help develop our youth into a hard working and passionate workforce with many becoming leaders to someday to open their own Hãnai. Your business helps creates dignity, work opportunities, and purposes for Arizona’s foster kids. You are part of their Hãnai.

Thank you for your support.
