Transition & Aftercare Support Services provides support for youth transitioning back into the community from the Hawai‘i Youth Correctional Facility and their families.
Services are based on an intensive, individualized, and strengths-based approach that focuses on the youth and family’s needs and goals. Each family is assigned a Community Advocate who helps them identify and cultivate community relationships and form a network to provide support. Families receive an average of 6 hours of advocacy services each week. Youth and families may also participate in our Wraparound Services, which are provided by a facilitator, navigator and parent partner.
