Celebrating 20 years
Services ~ Leading to Success
An overview of how our services provide the stepping stones for the child and parent to succeed
Project Hawai’i, Inc. collaborates within the community to provide job training, career path options, internships and job readiness to our parents who are ready for this life change. This program results in reduced or eliminated need of financial support from government and tax funded programs. On average our program places 6-8 single parents in the workforce on a monthly basis.
We provide internships in partnership with Universities to allow students to have hands on practical experiences to help end the cycle of poverty. Our interns help to create new programs, build community relationships and create opportunities. This partnership results in building a strong community that is ready to have an impact on changing the homeless crisis in Hawai'i.
Project Hawai’i, Inc. provides supportive services for those who wish to participate in school-based sports or activities the keep their minds and bodies healthy, help them stay out of trouble and support them in gaining the skills and self-esteem necessary to change their future. We provide all their supportive needs, purchase items, gear and pay tuitions. This program often results in college scholarships for many of our great athletes, which is their step out of homelessness on a path to success.
For single parents enrolled in the First to Work program, we provide the on the job training to meet their goals to financial freedom. Many of our single parents are enrolled in this program which also allows them the extra benefits of working alongside their children as they grow and develop in our programs. Statistically we see 80% of our parents enrolled in this program finding full-time employment within 3 months. This program transforms their lives from being unassured and unskilled, to confident and the will to create a better future. The results are ending their dependency on the social welfare system and raising their children with the strong set of hard working values. This program has also led to the success of many of our moms going to college and earning degrees with career opportunities such as nursing, teachers, etc. While this is a small percentage we are proud of the fact that we have these results.
We offer emergency services and basic life necessities to the unsheltered homeless in crisis. We are on call and ready to assist at a moments notice. Families are able to call with their needs. This results in the long life trust we build to help the families escape their cycle of poverty. Outreach is the first connection, building trust is the step needed to enroll families and children in our programs. Our programs are the stepping stones they need to succeed.
And our most recent success is the Dormitory we are opening on Big Island in Fall of 2022. Project Hawai’i, Inc. will be hosting 13 girls for the 2 year college programs in this amazing dorm/housing situation. The young adults will be learning life and social skills as well as how to transition into their own home after graduation with success. This endeavor is our largest yet! The lives impacted through this transitional program will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for the college students.
