Inkinen is assisting Lunalilo Home Trustee Selection Committee with their search.


Founded more than 130 years ago, Lunalilo Home’s vision is to be a nurturing and vibrant kauhale for all kūpuna. In fulfillment of the trust of King William Charles Lunalilo, the sixth reigning monarch of Hawai’i, our mission is to perpetuate the legacy of King William Charles Lunalilo to honor, tend to, and protect the well-being of elders.

In 2015, the Trustees of the Board of Lunalilo Home embarked on a bold strategic planning process to seek out new ways for the Trust and Home to reach substantially more disadvantaged Native Hawaiians kūpuna with quality services and programs to improve their well-being. The Board held 21 strategic planning meetings from October 2015 to February 2017 and the Kauhale Kūpuna Strategic Plan 2017-2027 was approved on January 29, 2018, by the Probate Court. Based on the socio-economic, health, and well-being landscape for our Native Hawaiian kūpuna, the Strategic Plan aims to achieve a new “Home” model for disadvantaged Hawaiian kūpuna as mandated by King Lunalilo and is a paradigmatic shift, after almost 150 years since the inception of the Trust, to reach more kūpuna, with quality care, services, and accommodations. This approach encompasses the importance of a wide range of components from the origins of Lunalilo Home (to provide housing and care for indigent Native Hawaiian kūpuna) to expand into and impact a wider network of kūpuna in their homes and communities.


The Trustee Selection Committee seeks a leader with the commitment and ability to perpetuate King William Charles Lunalilo’s vision and legacy. Executive leadership experience in one or more of the following areas is desired: Business Administration, Elder Care, Finance and Investments, Healthcare, Real Estate and Social Services.

The desirable qualities and characteristics of a trustee should include recognized reputation of integrity, ethical conduct, moral character and servant leadership; the capacity to fulfill the responsibilities of a fiduciary under trust law; board governance experience; expertise in their chosen profession that will add to the skillset of the Board; a genuine concern for the well-being of Native Hawaiians, particularly kūpuna; and a deep understanding of the person and legacy of King Lunalilo and how these are manifested and implemented in the mission and the Kauhale Kupuna Strategic Plan of the Trust. The next Trustee must embrace the core values that guide Lunalilo Trust: aloha, hōʻihi, laulima, mālama, hoʻomanawamui, lokomaikaʻi and pono.
