Family Intervention Services
The Salvation Army Family Intervention Services (FIS) provides residential, prevention and intervention services to adolescents in communities on the Big Island of Hawai'i. Its mission is to provide youth with skills for a healthy lifestyle, and instill purpose, hope and vision to youth and their families. FIS provides opportunities to achieve academic success and personal resiliency.
The specific programs within the Family Intervention Services include:
ALA KA'I NA OPIO (East Hawai'i)
PU'UHONUA NA OPIO (West Hawai'i)
These two emergency shelter programs on the East and West sides of the Big Island provide a sanctuary to youth ages 12 to 17 for up to 90 days of residence. The youth learn life skills including cooking, positive communication skills, personal hygiene, and socialization skills. While in residence, the youth's behavior, school and academic performance are monitored. Transportation is provided to school, appointments and program activities within city limits.
