Hale Kipa was awarded a total of $150,000 from the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation to fund the Haloa Home. $50,000 will be disbursed to Hale Kipa each year over the next three years.
One of Hale Kipa’s three independent living programs, the Haloa Home provides a safe and supportive environment for young women transitioning out of foster care to succeed as self-sufficient adults. Program staff assists the women with their higher education, employment and personal goals. Teaching household management, financial planning, and critical social skills, the program prepares participants for independent living.
“We are exceedingly thankful to the Weinberg Foundation for their unwavering commitment to Hale Kipa’s overall mission and programs such as the Haloa Home,” said Jaque Kelley-Uyeoka, deputy chief executive officer of Hale Kipa. “The Haloa Home and accompanying supportive services make residents’ aspirations reachable. We would not be able to present this opportunity to the home’s young women without the Weinberg Foundation’s generosity.”
