Na Ohana means “The Family” it means that we are all children of God and as members of the “Family” of God we believe in supporting and uplifting each member of “The Family” according to divine order.

Part of Hawaiian culture, ʻohana means family in an extended sense of the term including both blood-related or extended. It emphasizes that family and friends are bound together and members must cooperate and remember one another. The term is cognate with (and its usage is similar to) the New Zealand Māori term whānau.
In Hawaiian, the word is ʻohana with the leading inverted apostrophe (ʻ) indicating a glottal stop or ‘okina.
The root word ʻohā refers to the root or corm of the kalo, or taro plant (the staple "staff of life" in Hawaii), which Kanaka Maoli consider to be their cosmological ancestor.
In contemporary Hawaiian life, an ʻohana unit is a part of a house that may contain a grandparent or may be rented to the general public.

It is the mission of Ko Kakou Pu’uhonua and Hale Pu'uhonua to provide a structured cultural, spiritual, and educational rehabilitation program along with a positive living environment for those of Hawaiian ancestry, most of
whom are ex-convicts. Through peer group assistance, they will have the opportunity to rebuild their lives by learning to take responsibility for each other's welfare and by holding each other accountable for attaining the highest possible standards of success in practicing new ways of living.
