Personal Assistance Habilitation

Our Personal Habilitation (PAB) Workers provide one on one assistance to individuals of all ages with special needs in their homes and/or in the community. PAB workers help these individuals to acquire, retain and improve skills that allow them to be more self-sufficient, engage in opportunities which identify and expand personal interests, and build skills in self-advocacy.

In order to meet outcomes set forth in individualized plans, our staff provides assistance to clients in their daily living activities, social and leisure skill development, building relationships and exploring natural supports, as well as expanding volunteer/employment opportunities.

Each client is provided with a Service Supervisor to ensure that
  • participants are making progress on their goals
  • everyone is working collaboratively towards success
  • PAB performance is monitored and progress is reported regularly
  • monthly supervision with clients and their team is provided

Employment Services

Under the guidance of the My Choice My Way plan, Hawaii Behavioral Health works with The Department of Health, and other stakeholders, on providing employment services through DCP and IES to qualified participants. Our goal is to help participants attain competitive, integrated employment. We believe that all individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities have the capacity to find their life’s work.

Discovery and Career Planning (DCP)

During the Discovery and Career Planning Program (DCP), Hawaii Behavioral Health works with participants to explore their strengths, abilities, and interests. Our DCP services are designed to help participants explore future careers, build their skills, and realize their talents. Once participants are ready to enter the employment market, HBH transitions them into Individual Employment Supports.

Individual Employment Supports (IES)

Hawaii Behavioral Health’s Individual Employment Supports Program (IES) works with all stakeholders, while helping participants access and maintain employment in the community. HBH consults with employers, discovering their business needs, and finding mutually-beneficial employment opportunities for our participants. HBH also continues to develop our participants, providing person-centered employment planning, job coaching, and problem solving.
