This successful ministry helping homeless families transition into permanent housing has widespread support at Keolumana. Members provide baked goods, dinner and hosts during our quarterly week-long rotations as a support church with St. John Lutheran. Call Mary Weir at 664-4092 if you would like to participate, or visit www.familypromisehawaii.org for more information.
State Hospital Ministry
Our multi-year involvement in this ministry continues as Keolumana members joyfully have worship and fellowship with residents at the State Hospital in Kaneohe four Sunday evenings of the year. Contact Nan You if you would like to help with this rewarding ministry.
“Read to Me” is now in its 7th year at the Women’s Community Correctional Center in Kailua with over 60 inmates participating. A volunteer from Keolumana enjoys spending two hours every Monday helping to facilitate this program. “Read-to Me” offers mothers and grandmothers a chance to reconnect with their children in a positive way. The women are very grateful for this ministry and eagerly await their turn to read and record books and to send the CD’s and books home to their children signed with a message of love and hope. For more information or to volunteer, call Mary Weir at 664-4092.
