Kahului, Hawaii – Mal ama Family Recovery Center has been planning to upgrade and renovate its Therapeutic Living Facility, which is located in Kahului. On Saturday, June 24, 2006, they received much-needed assistance when 34 Rotarians from the Rotary Clubs of Kahului, Kihei Sunrise, Kihei-Wailea, Wailuku, the Maui Club and Maui Community College Rotaract volunteered to help with facility maintenance and repairs, landscape improvements and construction of fencing with the generosity and help of Darryl Riddel and his crew from Island Security Fence Company.
A $10,000 grant was awarded to Mal ama Family Recovery Center thanks to the Rotary Club of Kahului, which was recently selected to participate in the Weinberg Friends programs. The Weinberg Friends program allows a service organization to perform a community service project. On completion, the Foundation contributes $10,000 to an approved 501c3 public charity selected by the service organization.
The Weinberg Friends program is sponsored by the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, Inc., which is dedicated to assisting the poor, primarily through operating and capital grants to direct service organizations located in Baltimore, Hawaii, Northeastern Pennsylvania, New York, Israel and the Former Soviet Union. These grants are focused on meeting basic needs such as shelter, nutrition, health and socialization and on enhancing an individual’s ability to meet those needs.
MalamaFamily Recovery Center has served the population of Maui for over 15 years and provides family-centered treatment for drug and alcohol abuse/addiction for pregnant and parenting women and their children. Malama’s outreach and treatment programs are designed to assist participants to achieve their maximum potential for self-sufficiency through a holistic approach that encourages psychological, social, physical and spiritual health and development.
