Families lose housing for many reasons. A layoff, medical bills, the death of a family provider, or a raise in rent can leave families living on the streets or in their cars, struggling to put their lives back together. At IHS, our comprehensive services help each individual in the family so they can thrive, together.
Each child is assessed for learning progress and a customized plan to support each keiki’s development is created in partnership with parents. Afterschool programs include tutoring, art and extracurricular learning. Our inter-session programs include learning experiences, offsite tours, cultural excursions and summer fun. We also help with school supplies and clothing; and we work closely with schools to ensure every child accesses the full range of support available.
At Kahauiki Village, a supportive housing community for formerly homeless families, IHS Case Managers and Family Program managers, support the parents and children residing there. Support includes ensuring the children are enrolled and attending school and that families have access to public or private benefits for which they qualify.
