Planned Giving at Retirement Housing Foundation, 8 Oct 2013 [cached]
At the time Dr. Kawata was the United Church of Christ (UCC) Conference Minister in the Central Pacific Conference (Oregon and Southern Idaho). The Portland area was in great need of senior housing, so Dr. Kawata asked Rev. Harshfield if RHF could build in the Portland area.
It was only a few short years later when Dr. Kawata, who was now the Conference Minister in Hawaii, was approached by Rev. Harshfield to join RHF in the development of Pauahi Kupuna Hale in Honolulu with 48 apartments serving-older adults.
Dr. Kawata graciously agreed and a long relationship between Dr. Kawata and RHF began.
Dr. Kawata graduated from the University of Chicago Divinity School in 1952, and was ordained to the Christian Ministry in June of that year. He served churches in California and Hawaii, and on the national staff of the United Church of Christ.
