Our Community Teen Program is a comprehensive youth service center for youth ages 7-18 who live in and around Honolulu's largest public housing complex, Kuhio Park Terrace and Kuhio Homes and in Puuwai Momi, a low-income housing project in Halawa. These after-school programs promote the development of healthy youth, families, and community with an abundance of positive experiences for youth and family members including educational, recreational, community building and support services.
