The primary mission of Ohana Beginnings is to empower women through education. Our mission reads: "Ohana Beginnings educates and empowers women facing an unplanned pregnancy or who have been trafficked. We focus on education, emotional/physical healing, and the pathways that will lead her to her ultimate vision of happiness and success."
Ohana Beginnings provides a comprehensive education program. This program provides access to high school graduation, career goals, and post-secondary education opportunities. Education is an integral part of the mission and this emphasis is to assure that the participant is prepared to enter the workforce with needed skills. Education is stability, awareness and power. It is a critical part for a prosperous future in our society.
If a young woman gets pregnant while in high school, she only has a 50% chance of graduating high school by the time she is twenty-two years old.
