IHS Activities to Support Keiki

The Institute of Human Services provides respite for those who are unsheltered and offers solutions that transform the lives of people who are homeless and at-risk.

IHS After-School Activities are designed to help K-12 students with homework and/or facilitate other activities that meet the needs of each individual. A second program, IHS Parent & Child Engagement, is offered on certain weekday mornings. Parents are encouraged to attend WITH their kids (0-4 years old). The program facilitates child development, parenting skills, and assessment of progress.
