The HIKA Kupuna Care Program
Our project is geared towards Hawaii's elderly. We currently have a state contract that will only cover the fee for persons with mental disorders however, we serve more than the mental health population. The persons in need of the most assistance are the elderly.
Currently we have consumers that live in care homes and foster homes that we do not charge the fee for, because they cannot afford it. Our fee is $38.00 a month.
This population is growing and we would like to continue to protect our Kupuna from homelessness and other types of misuse of their benefits. We want to see our elderly that have come before us live the best quality of life that they can.
