Welcome to our newly redesigned website.

We’re glad you’re here. For over 50 years we have served Hawai‘i’s at-risk youth and their families. We are excited to introduce you to a heartfelt new look and feel for Hale Kipa.

This refreshed online presence dovetails with the recent opening of our physical campus, Harry and Jeanette Weinberg –  Hale Kipa –  Youth Services Center, on 4.26 acres in ‘Ewa, which will help Hale Kipa build a greater sense of place as we embrace the next 50 years. This location consolidates our offices and helps strengthen our array of services, while generating an anticipated operating cost savings of at least $100,000 per year.

Our new logo provides an authentic connection to this location and to our mission. The spiral form represents the piko – loosely translated to the center and lifeline – to Hawai‘i’s at-risk youth.

The spiral is overlaid on a kalo leaf in recognition of our new home in ‘Ewa, an area with a rich Hawaiian history centered around taro farming. The blue hues symbolize loyalty, strength, wisdom, faith and trust.

We invite you to browse our programs and services, and see how we are making an impact throughout Hawai‘i. You will find news and updates, stories and reports, and ways to get involved.

Mahalo for joining us on this next chapter.
