to be more.

Together, we thrive.

We believe when someone is empowered to realize their potential, thriving becomes more than a possibility. By giving individuals the tools to build their independence, pathways open and achieving new heights becomes reality.

Whether through life skills or job training, employment placement or meal delivery, we help individuals with disabilities and seniors recognize that they are more than able to live self-sufficiently.

Meet Kevin

"Everybody has the same capability, but sometimes it takes a little more effort to realize them. I feel like if I hadn't been transferred to the kitchen, I wouldn't have been able to grow as much as I would've thought of."

Kevin may have been shy when he first arrived to work at Lanakila Kitchen, but it didn’t take long before he found his stride working alongside his team members. Now, Kevin’s not only thriving in the fast-paced kitchen – he’s in charge of training his peers to properly prep food for seniors and others in need. At work, Kevin says he wants his coworkers to see that they all have the same potential to succeed, with a little effort.
