Become a Therapeutic Foster Family

The Nā ‘Ohana Pulāma (NOP) program provides therapeutic foster care for emotionally and behaviorally challenged youth in nurturing family homes. Funded by the Department of Health-Child and Adolescent Mental Health Division, NOP places youth ages 3 to 17 from around the state in homes on O‘ahu and Hawai‘i Island and uses the trauma-informed Teaching-Family Model. 

All children benefit when given a chance to thrive. Our Nā ‘Ohana Pulāma program is committed to nurturing a child’s resilience in therapeutic foster homes. If you have space in your heart and ‘ohana for an additional child, we have the training and support to assist in enhancing a child’s life. We offer:

  • 24/7 program support
  • respite (time off)
  • mileage reimbursement
  • therapy for youth
  • initial and ongoing training
  • ʻohana gatherings and recognition
  • resources and support networks
  • a tax free stipend
