You are invited to join your neighbors in community action.

Friends of Puna's Future (FoPF) is a nonprofit 501(c)4 organization comprised of concerned Puna residents, businesses and associations working together to lobby for long overdue changes in the Puna district.

Are you affected by a lack of:

  • Police Protection?
  • Medical Services?
  • Transportation?
  • Highway Safety?
  • Business Opportunity?
  • Quality Education?
  • Child Care?
  • Environmental Protection?
  • Crosswalks?
  • Recreation Areas?
  • Parks?
  • Trash Collection?
  • Postal Services?
  • Zoning?
  • General Law Enforcement?
  • County Infrastructure?
  • Ocean Access?

The time has come for Puna to organize as the central player in its own future. Bystanding and apathy will encourage and empower others to decide our future for us.

Our Puna Communities have individual needs, yet share common concerns. All of Puna suffers from poor infrastructure, lack of planning and a history of government that has disregarded the Puna District's remedies to its own problems.

FoPF supports solutions to improving Puna infrastructure which honor broad-based concerns of Puna residents. We will push for implementation of the Puna Community Development Plan, and promote cooperative efforts that empower Puna communities.

FoPF presently is organizing advisory committees to survey Puna residents before we act on issues of concern. As membership increases, FoPF will further organize by sub-district to ensure participation by all communities in Puna.

  • The Puna Community Development Plan (PCDP)
