At-Risk Children & Youth
Many of Hawaii's children and youth are living in at-risk situations. Poverty, domestic violence, drugs & alcohol, gangs and a lack of education are shaping their lives and leading them toward a bleak future.
Word of Life is puting compassion into action by providing outreach programs to at-risk children and youth that offer the hope of a better life.
KIDZ LIFE 360 COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAM
Kidz Life 360 is a children's program (ages 3-12) providing fun and exciting weekly activities in Hawaii's housing communities. Our goal is to provide a positive, encouraging and motivating environment where children will recognize and develop their talents, nurture strong relationships, build moral standards, and teach positive values. Every life is significant. Every child matters.
YOUTH LIFE 360 COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAM
At-Risk youth and young adults are surrounded by gangs, drugs, alcohol, truancy, violence, abuse, neglect, poverty and broken homes. Our Life 360 Youth Outreach Program mentors and supports youth and young adults. Our goal is to provide opportunities and experiences to promote their progress and success. Through positive mentorship and a Christ-centered environment, young people who've been involved in our program have made positive changes in thier lives and neighborhoods.
Life 360 networks with other organizations such as: the Honolulu Police Department, Weed and Seed, Ha'awi Mai Ka Pu'u Wai Coalition, Project tHInk!, the Department of Education, the Chinatown Business Association and many others. We believe in the value of these partnerships and community involvement.
A few of the communities we're currently inovlved in are: Mayor Wright Housing, Halawa Housing, Kuhio Park Terrace, Kam IV, Palolo and Kahuumanu Homes.
