Being a Resource Family with Kamali'i Foster Family Agency can be an exciting life changing decision.
At Kamali’i Foster Family Agency, we make every effort to accommodate a child’s every need. Your donations help us in this process by not only helping a single child in need but supporting a greater program of needs that service many children. Donations are used for specific programs such as teaching our youth Independent Living Skills or providing parenting classes for pregnant and parenting teens. Donations are also used to provide for individual child clothes, school supplies and activities. Because of your financial assistance these programs can continue to help foster youth in placement by providing them with the resources to be successful. We thank you in advance for any contribution you can make to us.
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.

My heart began to race as I reflected on an innocent eleven day old baby fighting for his life (all alone) in the Neonatal Intensive Unit. I couldn’t drive fast enough and later that day I was...
