EARLY EDUCATION SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
It's often said by many that "Children" are our future. Here at Unity House, we believe an early education is vital to a child's development. For more than a decade, Unity House has sponsored a Child Care Assistance Program that provides parents with tuition assistance at licensed child care centers throughout the islands. Twice a year, eligible parents can enroll their children in the program and have peace of mind knowing their keiki is receiving good care while they are at work. This program is open to all Unity House beneficiaries, their children, and grandchildren. A Unity House beneficiary is defined as a past, present, or retired union member or friends of labor in the State of Hawaii and other similar organizations.
Open Enrollment periods are twice a year (January/February and July/August). Application, Instructions, & Brochure are available only during the "Open Enrollment" periods. The award is $100 per month, per child. Limited to one award per child per award period. Click here for current criteria.
