About Us

Our Name


 Part of Hawaiian culture, "Ohana" means family in an extended sense of the term, including blood-related, adoptive or intentional. Ohana emphasizes that families are bound together and members must cooperate and remember one another. 

Our Mission


Our passion is strengthening existing families and homes to vulnerable children and youth, offering trauma informed care, supporting the parents and professionals that surround kids in care, helping youth transition to successful adulthood, and advocating for systemic and structural community based change. 

Our Theology


400,000 U.S. children in foster care 27,000 in TX.  6,500 waiting for their own (adoptive) homes. Ohana Ministries is not driven by need, but theology. We too were once orphans, in desperate need of a loving Father, and He waits, arms wide open, for the least of these.
