The Hale Pono Teen Shelter will be a safe place for youth 12-17 years old in need of a sanctuary until they can be reunited with their family or find other supportive living arrangements. The shelter will have 13 beds plus 1 ADA accessible bed available for youth who meet the admission criteria. Hale Pono will be a short term sanctuary for youth, with stays limited to 30 days, as the primary goal of the shelter is family reunification or effective placement into long-term solutions for youth. Hale Pono is not a treatment facility of any kind, though therapeutic services will be coordinated for youth and for their families as needed to facilitate positive solutions for youth and families.
