Office of Hawaiian Affairs Awards $100,000 Grant to Maui Family Support Services
Maui Family Support Services received a $100,000 grant from the Office of Hawaiian Affairs to support the Ho‘owaiwai Kaiāulu Project.
The project provides a continuum of programs to strengthen the physical and mental well-being of Native Hawaiian ‘ohana and keiki, to increase their social and emotional competence, and to improve ‘ohana strengths and resilience.
Services will include Outreach and Resource information for families, home visiting services to families with young children, and men’s groups that promote fatherhood involvement.
The funding is part of the Kulia Grant program, which strengthens Native Hawaiian individuals, families and communities as part of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs’ Strategic Plan for 2020-2035.
