Watch, observe. Help others and accept help. That is the family way. To hanai someone means to adopt them, to welcome them into your family, to care for and support them. In Hawaii, our community is our family. The IHS Hanai Program is rooted in this philosophy. Our goal is to connect people who have the capacity and desire to help with those who are ready to accept it. That is the family way.
