Independent Living Program
Support for youth who have aged out of the foster care system and help with developing and achieving educational and employment goals as well as accessing needed community resources. These resources may be related to healthcare, housing or other social service needs. Our counselors help young adults acquire the skills they need to live successful and independent lives. Clients in this program are eligible to live in our new (as of August, 2017) transitional shelter for former foster youth, Ka Lewa Nu’u. Click here to learn more about this exciting project!

Outreach and Advocacy
Community-based outreach to at-risk youth (ages 10-21) and their families in an environment in which they are comfortable. Youth often need short-term intervention as opposed to juvenile justice involvement. An outreach counselor provides advocacy services such as case management and social service referrals and gives families access to professional assistance to help their children make better choices.Read less
The program often serves as a resource to local law enforcement agencies as an alternative to incarceration when family is unavailable.
