Kaua‘i Community Office

KAUA‘I COMMUNITY OFFICE
The Community Office promotes the mission of Catholic Charities Hawai‘i on the island of Kaua‘i in partnership with the local community. The Community Office assists families and individuals in need by providing information, help with applications for assistance, and referrals to Catholic Charities Hawai‘i programs or other local resources. Working to identify and link resources to address gap needs on Kaua‘i, the Community Director is the on-island point of contact for collaboration with local agencies and community organizations.

COMMUNITY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
Provides limited financial assistance to families facing temporary financial hardship typically related to urgent housing needs (rent, deposit, utilities) and small gap needs (bus passes, school uniforms, or safety gear for work); requires concurrent enrollment in the Asset Building Program.

FOSTER OR RELATIVE PLACEMENT SERVICES

We provide home study and case management services for children statewide who are being reunified with biological parents or who are being considered for foster or relative placement. We also monitor and ensure safe and stable placement of children in foster or relative care. (see government referral services)
