Waikiki Health Center receives grant for homeless youth | News
Friends of Hawaii Charities awarded Waikiki Health Center $3,000 for their Youth Outreach (YO) Program. They provide medical and social services to runaways and other homeless youth.
The grant will go toward their “YO Eats Fresh” campaign to enhance the nutritional value of the meals offered three days a week at the YO Drop-in Center.
“Support from Friends of Hawaii Charities will enable us to supplement our current meals service with fresh produce, meat and bread, so that our young people have the best food possible to maintain their health,” Jeeyun Lee, Youth & Elder Services Manager said.
YO also offers counseling, job and shelter assistance, GED preparatory classes, recreational activities, laundry and shower facilities and group sessions on conflict resolution.
The YO Teen Clinic offers primary health care, health education and other services to clients age 14 and older. YO is operated in conjunction with Hale Kipa, which provides many social service aspects of the program.
