About Us

about Owakihi Owakihi is a Lakota word meaning, “I am able”. We live out this mantra on a daily basis. We support people to live their life with independence. Support them to live their best life. Support them to believe that they are able to do anything they set their mind to. At Owakihi, we recognize that all people have hopes, dreams, wants, and needs. We partner with people to consistently improve their quality of life by making them the center of their support planning, providing person centered care, helping them to identify and reach life goals, and providing balance between the things that are important to and for them in their lives.

Since 1978, Owakihi has provided home and community-based supports to people with intellectual disabilities and mental health needs, focusing on personalized care. We are dedicated to continually improving the quality of life for people in need, providing them with a brighter, more independent future. It is our vision to enrich the lives of people with intellectual disabilities by training others to provide the same Person Centered support that help people achieve their hopes and dreams.

Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love. Lao Tzu
