The Hapai Home Programs are teaching foster homes exclusively for pregnant teens and teen mothers. They are staffed by a Case Manager who provides counseling and support, as well as individual and group skill building.
The Hapai Home Program provides these young women with a safe place to enjoy a healthy pregnancy, build a positive parent-child foundation, and prepare for independent living. Residents remain in the program for a period of 3 months to 1 year. Most are already under the care of the Department of Human Services; others are on probation.
Young women in the Hapai Home Program are encouraged to develop basic independent living skills such as time and money management, employment/vocation, education, social and personal skills, household management, health, and making the most of community resources, as well as child development and parenting skills.
