  • Tūtū and Me Home Visiting

    Tūtū and Me Home Visiting

    Tutu and Meʻs Home Visiting Program has expanded to five districts, serving families in Kaʻū, Kohala, East Hawaiʻi, Hāmākua, and the island of Molokaʻi. The program is a family-strengthening model that provides caregiver support and educational resources to families with keiki age’s birth to five. Home Visitors Linda Bong (Kaʻū), Lani Bowman (Kohala), Amanda Ishigo (East Hawaii), Ashlynn Victorino (Hāmākua), and Kahana DeKneef (Molokaʻi) meet with families once a week or twice per month for 12 to 15 sessions. Known as Hawaiʻi’s “last fishing village,” Miloliʻi is five miles downhill from Māmalahoa Highway in South Kona and at the end of a narrow, winding road. With no electricity or running water, Miloliʻi is a community where traditional fishing methods are still practiced. Thanks to the dedication of skilled residents and cultural practitioners, cultural values, and rich generational knowledge are being preserved and passed on. For more information, please contact JoAnn Wasson....
