About Weed & Seed Hawaii


Weed & Seed (W&S) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that was established by the U.S. Department of Justice in 1991 as an innovative and comprehensive approach to law enforcement and community revitalization. The program attempts to “weed out” criminal elements such as violent crime, gang activity, truancy, drug use and trafficking in target areas, and then “seed” programs to restore the neighborhoods through social and economic revitalization. W&S continues to make a difference in communities it serves, thanks to the support of the Federal, State, and City governments, as well as through corporate, individual and foundation donations and grants.
