Bringing Hope and Healing to Vulnerable Children
Okoa’s Residential Child Rescue Center is truly special! We’re passionate about these amazing children, but we believe no child should have to grow up in an institution. When a child arrives, our staff of mentors, social workers, caretakers, and healthcare professionals begins developing an individualized exit strategy for that child, prioritizing health, safety, and nurturing. This means tracing relatives or connecting with local adoptive families to help secure a child’s future.
Finding Forever Families
When you join a child’s Care Team through monthly support, you become a critical part of the journey to help a child find their forever family.

Okoa works diligently to find forever families for each child in our care, but sometimes, it is not possible. For those children, Okoa is and always will be “home.” From housing, meals, healthcare, daily needs, mentoring, and education, these children receive love and everything they need from Okoa.
Residential program fees
It only takes $150*/month to provide excellent care to one Okoa child!
Care Team partners give monthly support in full ($150/month) or in $25 increments. So a full Care Team can be one person or as many as six people!
Please note: Children with an asterisk (*) require specialized medical care. Their Care Team fees are $250/month.
Any support received above a child’s set amount is used to cover costs for children without Care Team partners.
Family & Disability program
We partner with families as they grow to confidently lead, provide, and care for their children with disabilities and/or significant medical needs. Okoa covers surgery costs, provides medicines and therapies, supplies specialized and custom assistive devices, and champions parents as they create the best environments for their children to thrive.
