Our Programs & Services

First Contact
We extend a warm aloha to every individual upon entrance followed by an assessment of needs. We promise to act as advocates and give individuals the tools necessary to lead happy and healthy lives. Our case managers work with our clients to create action plans that reflect individual goals and help them work toward meeting those goals.
Emergency Housing Program
Our Emergency Housing Program is a vital resource for people facing homelessness. We provide safe, secure shelter and hot meals in addition to case management services.
Transitional Housing Program
Clients entering the Transitional Housing Program work towards maintaining self-sufficiency with support from a case manager. Housing is combined with wrap-around services to assist the individual with developing stability in their lives. The path toward stability may include studying for the G.E.D., vocational training, learning to manage money, paying down debt or saving up for a home.
Chemical Dependency Program
KHAKO offers a comprehensive chemical dependency education program designed to promote awareness of the negative consequences of addiction on the individual and their families. Our program is designed around the Matrix Model and implemented by credentialed professionals. We also offer comprehensive assessment tools to determine the needs of each client for effective case management that leads to higher levels of success.
Children's Services
As parents work to get back on their feet, their children receive quality care. Every child is assigned their own case manager to monitor their health, safety, and educational growth. Children Case Managers also link children and families to helpful resources available in the community and coordinate after-school programs.
Rental Assistance Program

The goal of the Rental Assistance Program (RAP) is to provide supplemental assistance to qualifying individuals and families for rental or utility assistance, case management, and ancillary services to support them in making the adjustment to market rental housing and economic self sufficiency. For more information, contact our RAP Specialist at (808) 446-8129.
