Ohana Homes creates safe, faith-based and loving family environments for children and adults with developmental disabilities. We also have homes licensed through DCS for children in foster care.
Our mission is to create dignified homes through love and family.


In the words of Lilo & Stitch, Ohana means family, and family means no one is left behind or forgotten. No matter your age, disability, or life circumstance, your personal story will be honored and you will be considered part of our Ohana.


It is Ohana’s belief that everyone deserves to be in a family like home with loving and caring adults. We create homes where children and adults will be able to find meaning and purpose for their lives, with their dignity upheld, and individual differences embraced.


We are more than a home — we are in the business of creating Ohana for you.
