National Social Work Month - School Success Program - 2016 Annual Report - YO! -  Grants & Donations

Did you know that social workers help people in all stages of life -- from children to the elderly -- and in all situations -- from adoption to hospice care?

This month the National Association of Social Workers is recognizing social workers through “Social Workers Stand Up,” a campaign to recognize their invaluable contributions. Learn more about the campaign here.

Follow us on Twitter at @HaleKipaInc and Facebook, where we are posting news, tips and updates throughout National Social Worker Month in March.

Students Complete First Apprenticeship Project
Hale Kipa’s School Success Program on Kauai, which assists youth and young adults up to age 22 with GED, credit-recovery and skills-based education, has completed the first project in its new pilot apprenticeship program launched last year.

The program allows students to practice valuable job skills like punctuality and communication while working in real-world scenarios and earning a small stipend. Four students enrolled in a construction apprenticeship this past fall and winter designed and built a doghouse, which recently sold for $500.

Proceeds raised from the doghouse will directly fund the program, and the next project – a fruit stand – is already in progress. / More

Recent Grants and Donations to Support 
Programs, Youth, and Ewa Campus

Recent grant and donation support includes:
  • $25,000 grant from the Matson Foundation to support our planned new headquarters in Ewa.
  • The “Hail to the Queens” tribute to women in rock event, spearheaded by Cathy Lowenberg and Caitlin Bunner, at Anna O’Brien’s on Jan. 14, 2017, raised $1,735. All proceeds from the event benefit Hale Kipa.
  • Proceeds from the September “Surfing with the King” surf contest, sponsored by Hope Chapel Waikiki, were donated to Hale Kipa. The event raised $2,427, which will support the operations of the Youth Outreach (YO!) program in Waikiki, run by Hale Kipa and Waikiki Health.
  • The Zonta Club of Kauai has donated a bike to a youth in Kauai’s School Success program. The Zonta Club works to empower women in Hawaii and around the world.
  • The Pacific Revival Center in Kapolei and the employees at UnitedHealthcare, spearheaded by Elena Fragas, have filled wish lists from youth and program coordinators in Hale Kipa programs. These in-kind donations benefited the Youth Outreach program, Boy’s Emergency Shelter, Girl’s Emergency Shelter, and the Transitional Living Program.

Hale Kipa is primarily dependent on government funding, which does not cover our true cost of services. Grants and donations like these help make up that difference.
