WAIANAE, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Hoomau Ke Ola, an innovative drug treatment program located in Waianae is based on Hawaii's own cultural and spiritual values. Research and data tell us that meaningful rehabilitation must include a total and complete change of one’s life, lifestyle, and values. Ho`omau Ke Ola believes that in Hawaii, such change is much more likely to occur in a learning environment that is based on cultural and spiritual values from Hawaii`s rich past.

HKO is a non-profit Hawaiian culture-based substance abuse program that has been helping over 4,000 individuals since 1987 heal from addiction to drugs and alcohol. Last year, we were honored to become stewards of over 1,000 acres of land in Waianae Valley. Hoomau Ke Ola means to "perpetuate life as it was meant to be" and we are raising funds to help us restore the aina to what it once was in the past--the breadbasket of the Leeward Coast. Moneys from the concert will be used to provide our most basic need--Wai, fresh water.

The benefit concert will be on October 16, 2016, from 10 - 4 pm at  Lanikuhonua.
