The J. Walter Cameron Center is the place where Maui’s families can reach fifteen resident agencies all in one location. Every year more than 200 community organizations use the affordably priced meeting facilities. In many communities a place like the Cameron Center is still a dream.
On behalf of our Board of Directors, staff and volunteers we thank you for your continued support through donations and contributions as well your participation in the Golf Tournament of Champions at Kapalua. Your gifts help maintain our ability to provide a place of hope for the special people of Maui.
