About Us

Aloha!

The Ohana Clubhouse was created to provide quality childcare to middle school and high school age kids  with developmental disabilities along with their siblings in a small family home setting.

Parents often struggle to find after-school and summer childcare options for their children who have Autism, Down Syndrome, Epilepsy, Cerebral Palsy or Intellectual Disabilities. Our program encourages the development of social and independent living skills. Youth in our care will also have the opportunity to participate in planned community outings. If you are interested in more information about our program, please email us!

In the fall of 2017, we will begin offering an internship program for college students to gain experience with children and teens with disabilities. Our goal is to provide a safe, fun, supervised learning environment to inspire future educators and leaders in our disability community.
