 Ho'omana assists the emotionally, mentally, physically challenged
and those with disabilities with every opportunity to reach their maximum potential.

 Ho'omana is derived from the Hawaiian word: 

~ Ho'o-Causive prefix (one that produces a result.
~ Mana-Authority, power, might.


Ho' omana is working to raise $10,000 to qualify for a matching grant we applied for in 2018. 
We are asking for the communities help in making this grant possible so that we may
​continue the work we have been doing to change lives of Teens and Adults on Kauai.
Visit our "Giving" Page to learn more or click the "donate" button below. 

in 2003 Ho'omana  began developing and implementing curriculum-based programs to  ensure that
children with disabilities ​would be prepared for adulthood upon completion of  high school.

In 2012-2013 the Department of Education had 923 students in grades
Pre-K through grade 12 ​who received special education services

As youth transition into adulthood, many of those with  "special needs" have no desire or are
unable to continue on with additional formal education. Ho'omana provides an  alternative
to enable these young adults to learn life and jobs kills.
