The Salvation Army owns and operates the historic Wai’oli Tea Room in the gorgeous Manoa Valley area of Honolulu.

Dedicated in 1922, the tea room was built as part of The Salvation Army’s Girls’ Home program to teach young women marketable job skills. The Wai’oli Tea Room was added to the National Register of Historic Places by the National Park Service in 1998.

Recently, the management of the Wai’oli Tea Room was transferred to the local Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center in Honolulu to provide ministry and vocational opportunities for the men and women in residence at the center.
