Hale Kipa recently opened a new transitional housing option in Makiki for young adults in its Imua Kākou and Transitional Living programs.
The Keeaumoku Transitional Apartment is a three-bedroom, two-bathroom shared living space for women who are at least 18 years old. This new option is designed to meet a growing need for low-cost transitional housing. The apartment can accommodate four people for up to 18 months as they work with Hale Kipa staff to secure more permanent housing.
These young adults work or attend school and have demonstrated that they are ready to live independently and handle daily responsibilities. They have weekly check-ins with Hale Kipa staff, who help them work toward self-sufficiency.
The Imua Kākou Program has for more than 2 years served youth who age out of foster care at 18 years old, while the Transitional Living Program provides outreach and residential services to formerly homeless young adults ranging in age from 18 to 21 years old.
