Maui Behavioral Health Resources



Maui Behavioral Health Resources’ agencies work together to help thousands of Maui residents each year by ensuring everyone has the help they need to achieve and maintain a foundation for lasting recovery and well-being.


MBHR is an umbrella organization of three nonprofit agencies that helps those affected by substance abuse and/or mental health issues, as well as at-risk youth. Each agency has its own unique mission:

Maui Youth & Family Services: To empower youth and families challenged with behavioral health issues to become responsible, self-fulfilled and contributing members of the community.

Aloha House: To promote recovery and healthy lifestyles to individuals and families by providing compassionate, effective and comprehensive behavioral health services with the spirit of excellence and aloha.

Malama Family Recovery Center: To provide caring, holistic substance abuse treatment to women and children so families can live safe, independent and healthy lives. It is the only place on Maui where children can stay with their mothers in treatment.


Financial Donations: You can give to an agency’s general fund, to be used where the need is greatest, or to a particular program or project that is special to you. Make an instant donation online at

Matching Gifts: Many employers offer a matching gift program for employees.

Planned Giving: Create a lasting legacy by making a planned gift to one of our agencies. Your contribution makes a significant difference and ensures Maui Youth & Family Services, Aloha House and Malama Family Recovery Center are thriving now and in the future.

Foundation Grants: We work with a wide variety of private, family and corporate foundations.
