Meet Christian, one of our foster youth. In July his doctor recommended Christian be more active and eat healthier. Although it is tough for him to break his old habits and keep the weight off, his persistence is paying off and he’s already down 15 pounds and counting! He’s been an inspiration to the staff and his house! Way to go, Christian!
Meet Devin. One of Devin’s dreams is to be a firefighter. The Ohana staff has encouraged Devin to make fitness a priority, and he has taken on the challenge by exercising multiple times a day. We are all extremely proud of Devin’s initiative and know he has an incredible future ahead of him!
Meet Cristina. She has come such a long way since moving to Ohana. Our Direct Care Worker Natalie has worked with her to improve her mobility and now is improving her health with exercises every day. One of Cristina’s favorite things to do is play Sorry! She also continues to amaze the staff with her abilities, growing her vocabulary and even learning sign language. Everyone loves making memories with Cristina!
This summer, Ohana Athletics conducted a basketball clinic for kids in 1st - 8th grade. Every Saturday morning, boys and girls learned the fundamentals of basketball while staying active and having fun. It was particularly great seeing several of our special needs Ohana kids displaying their skills.
