About Imua

Aloha and E komo mai!

Welcome to Imua Family Services!  The word Imua in Hawaiian means to “move forward.”  We are a non-profit, community based organization serving Maui, Molokai and Lana`i.   This website is a place for our island families who are facing challenges and concerns with their child’s development, behavior or disability. We provide family-centered, therapeutic services for infants, toddlers and preschool children, from birth to age six and their families.

Since 1947, we have been fulfilling our mission to “Empower families and their children to reach their full potential. Imua Family Services programs include our Infant Child Development Program, serving children birth to age three and our Early Childhood Development Program, serving children three through six years old.  Our other programs include Imua Autism Services, Newborn Hearing Screening, Imua Inclusion Preschool, Dream Imua and Camp Imua.

Camp Imua provides a unique week-long, overnight recreational camp experience for 60 school age children with special needs supported by a trained volunteer care team. Dream Imua helps Maui County’s neediest children, by granting them the ability to choose a dream day of activities empowering them to believe that they are special and there is hope.

Mahalo for visiting our site, we hope you can find the resources you are looking for. Please contact us for additional information or with any questions about how we may help you and your child move forward.
