The goal of the Hooikaika Peer Mentoring project was to help individuals with traumatic brain injury in Hawaii find and use support services. Our volunteer mentors were matched to peers, providing them with companionship, information and ongoing monthly activities. The project closed is late 2009. Our Hooikaika volunteers continue to support us by recruiting for our new project, the Hawaii Neutrotrauma Registry Project.
STRIDE (Successful Transitions in Diverse Environments) offered 16-26 year old disabled youth a variety of educational & vocational opportunities centered on developing their independence and success as members of their communities.
