KeAla: The WaY
Our mission is to create communities that support the youth of Hawaii. We are committed to giving unconditional support to anyone in need through our health and wellness platforms. When you partner with the KeAla Foundation you become a part of our might ohana— a family that works together to turn the tides of Hawaiian communities at risk.
Our first program began in 2013, created by Aaron Hoff. He grew up on Kauai, knowing well the challenges that young people are faced with on the island. Drug and alcohol abuse are a major problem, particularly with the youth. Aaron has been clean and sober for 20 years now and has dedicated his life to giving kids a better choice and support them through the most formative and critical years of their life.
We believe that the solution to substance abuse begins with healthy relationships. Through community we can equip people with the tools to be successful and overcome any challenge. Whether our focus is prevention or rehabilitation, our tactics are the same; create community, provide resources, and maintain relationships.
