Pacific Gateway Center

The mission of Pacific Gateway Center is to empower low-income residents, immigrants, refugees and other vulnerable populations to achieve self-sufficiency through skill-building and access to opportunities while respecting cultural heritages.  As the majority of our immigrant clients are farmers from their respective home countries, leading self-sufficient lives means returning to the farm. Currently we lease 206 acres of farmland to refugee and immigrant families in Kunia.
