A Message from Our Director

Welcome to our website! Project Kealahou is establishing a trauma-informed system of mental health care to help Hawai‘i’s ethnically diverse girls with significant trauma issues. We seek to collaborate effectively with state child-serving agencies, communities and families to nurture healthy relationships, well-being and community connections for girls.

We hope this website is a gathering of helpful information about our project and our community that supports you—whether as a youth, referral source, primary caregiver, auntie or uncle, or hānai parent.

I want to take this opportunity to tell you that your feedback and suggestions are so important to me and the rest of our Project staff too. If you have anything you’d like to share with me, please don’t hesitate to fill out our Contact form, or call or email me directly.

E mālama pono,
Ruth LaMer, LCSW
Clinical Director
