Being a Resource Family with Kamali'i Foster Family Agency can be an exciting life changing decision.

Imagine a world where everyone has a home, job, and supportive community.

YOU can make it possible for 

Transitional Age Youth!

Even when Transitional Age Youth (TAY)--young people aged 16-24 in transition from state custody or foster care--age out of the foster care system, Kamali’i continues supporting them in every way possible.

We created an Amazon wish list for items TAY can use in their homes that will benefit their quality of life, encourage their independence, and bring joy to their everyday routine.

Please consider donating to make an impactful and meaningful difference in their adulthood. 100% of your donation will go towards connecting them to the essential items they need!

How To Become A Resource Family



You must have the ability to provide a safe, nurturing and predictable home environment. Most importantly, you must have the desire to love and care for a child in need.

Kamali’i will provide 24 hours of classroom setting training and you must be part of a Treatment Team that works together always in the best interest of the child and their individual needs.



Potential Resource Families are screened through a formal interview process (Psychosocial Assessment), training classes, and a thorough background check (Live Scan) that includes a FBI and Criminal Record background checks and a Child Abuse Index.

You must be 21 years of age or older. Single or married, we do ask that you have a reliable source of income. Also, you must have available space within your home and maintain reliable transportation with adequate seating capacity.
