The Story of Hānai

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

Hānai is a term used in the Hawaiian culture that refers to finding your tribe. It’s about a family taking in someone as their own as an informal adoption.

In the words of Lilo and Stitch, it’s where Ohana means family, and family means no one is left behind or forgotten.  Hānai is a place where friends become family. Where our tribe is found. Where we become better together. 

Hānai was created by a group of people passionate about creating a place where we can all find our tribe. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

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 (known as their Hānai) steps in the gap for a child in need. 

We are the Hānai for the most vulnerable children in our community.

10% of all profits go to a local non-profit, Ohana, who creates loving homes and supportive services for foster youth. 

These profits help foster kids transition to adulthood by providing mentorship, housing and other needed resources. 

Hānai also employs youth in the foster care system and adults with special needs. 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 Hānai. 

Your business helps creates dignity, work opportunities, and purposes for Arizona’s foster kids. You are part of their Hānai.

Thank you for your support.
