Kahumana Works transitional job training program is part of Kahumana's larger efforts to help get homeless families into permanent housing by fostering independence and self-sufficiency. The program primarily serves members of Kahumana's transitional housing programs for families with minor dependent children.

"She beat all the odds"

Being homeless and suffering with an addiction is hard enough. Add in seven children and the odds of recovering become somewhat overwhelming and almost impossible. This mother took herself out of the homeless situation and started her recovery over two years ago.  She is now working part-time and going to school full-time to finish her degree at Leeward Community College, all while being a single parent.

The program connects job seekers with employment in the community, as well as within Kahumana.
