Continuing Education & Job Training

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”

 

Jim Casey, the founder of United Parcel Service established Casey Family Programs in 1966 to help meet the safety and overall health and well-being needs of vulnerable children and their families across America. Casey Family Programs proudly carries on the Casey tradition of building hope and success for children, families and the communities they live in.

 

Those who received foster care, guardianship or adoption services from Casey Family Programs may be eligible for Continuing Education and Job Training (CEJT) Scholarships as provided through Family Programs Hawaii to become successful and independent adults.
