HCAP Corporate Office
HCAP’s Corporate Office serves as both the administrative headquarters and home base for several of HCAP’s programs. It also houses support staff for the various programs and services HCAP delivers in the community.
District Service Centers
HCAP operates five District Service Centers on Oahu to provide resources and services to low-income residents near their home communities. Each District Service Center is advised by a District Council made up of area residents and community stakeholders whose primary purpose is to provide district staff and the agency with input, guidance, and advice as to the particular conditions, needs, requirements, and desires of the low-income populations in its respective community.
The District Service Centers also offer a variety of programs and services to people of all ages. Community workers provide outreach, recruitment, intake, assessment, service planning and assistance accessing needed resources. Direct services provided by the district centers include job readiness training, job placement, support services, housing referrals, individual tax preparation, utilities assistance and emergency food assistance. District Service Centers are encouraged to also develop and implement programs particular to their respective districts.
HCAP Head Start & Early Head Start
HCAP Head Start operates over 70 center-based classes throughout Oahu. The majority of sites are Department of Education classrooms, Department of Human Services Pre-Plus sites (on DOE campuses), and City and County of Honolulu – Department of Parks and Recreation facilities. HCAP Head Start provides early childhood education to children 3 to 5 years old from low-income families.
The program also gives parents opportunities to develop their own skills through participation in the classrooms and the program’s decision making processes. HCAP runs the largest Head Start program in the state, serving over 1,500 children a year. The program offers wraparound preschool services with part day/part year, full day/part year, and home-based opportunities.
