ABOUT THE FERNHURST FACILITY
YWCA O‘ahu has been a place of shelter, safety and hope for women since 1911. Originally located at the corner of King and Alapai Streets, Fernhurst was the former residence of Mr. and Mrs. J.B. Atherton. As a gift from the Atherton family, Fernhurst from its beginnings in 1921 was intended to be and has been a warm and inviting place for women. In 1952, Fernhurst reopened where it stands today in Makiki. Despite its new location and most recent renovations, the rich history still influences the supportive environment and homely feel of Fernhurst to this day. This facility is entirely mission oriented and dedicated to empowering women successfully transitioning from prison back into the community.
