330 people attended our ‘Ohana Camp this weekend at Camp Homelani in Waialua.

Aloha to our Salvation Army ‘Ohana,

This past weekend we held our ‘Ohana Camp for families in need of quality time, fellowship, and prayer. We are very blessed to witness many lives changing through God’s love at Camp Homelani. Here are a few of our favorite moments.

Keiki were treated to cotton candy, shaved ice, and goodies at the ‘Ohana bazaar.


The ‘Ohana Camp was also an opportunity to swear in new soldiers from our corps across the Hawaiian Islands.

We’d like to thank all of our staff and volunteers who made this opportunity possible for our families across the state.

Last week, Ohana 100 donated brand new children’s books to our Family Treatment Services Therapeutic Nursery. Mothers and their keiki were given the opportunity to select a book to keep.


Keiki were given a variety of educational books on family, animals, cars, and more.

Ohana 100 is an organization that promotes literacy and providing books to keiki in disadvantaged communities. Mahalo for your donation to our clients at FTS and for providing reading material for our nursery!
