The Milele Model

Learn more about our model to achieve life-changing transformation in the lives of youths formerly living on the streets.

Transitional Program

The Transitional Program targets the most neglected demographic of street children, those deemed “too-far-gone." The program provides 12 weeks of holistic care, including food, life skills, therapy, career counseling, trauma care, and discipleship. This program is intended to prepare street youth to return to their families, begin school and/or start their careers. The transitional program serves as the first step in the healing and reconciliation process as teens express the desire to change their situation.

Temporary Stability

Whether it’s back home  with their bio-families, with one of our emergency foster families, or in our temporary apartments, each teen is removed from the streets as they continue the healing process and begin their education once again.

Social Work


The teen has now been reintegrated or reconciled with their family. They  have once again become a contributing member of their community as they continue to heal. The process doesn’t end here though, social workers and counselors continue to work with the teen and their family to support their long term health.
