Family Treatment Services to move to Manoa Campus in summer 2022.

Changes are underway in The Salvation Army Hawaiian and Pacific Islands Division, affecting the Army’s Family Treatment Services as well as the Army’s divisional administrative offices.

On May 1, The Salvation Army listed the Kaimuki Campus, a current location of the Family Treatment Services, for sale. The site, located at 845 22nd Ave., is approximately 9.2 acres—about 404,000 sq. ft. of land. No asking price was set. Prospective offers will be reviewed in early fall 2019. The property is listed with local broker Colliers International—Hawaii.

The Salvation Army intends to lease back the Kaimuki Campus from the purchaser for a period of time following the close of the property to allow for renovations and construction to be completed on their Manoa Campus—current location of Divisional Headquarters—which will eventually house Family Treatment Services.

“Since we intend to lease back the property for a time, it will continue to be business as usual at our Kaimuki Campus until even after the property sale closes,” said Divisional Commander Major Jeff Martin. “We’ll be utilizing a portion of the funds to renovate our Manoa Campus and consolidate Family Treatment Services in one location and relocate our divisional administrative offices elsewhere in Honolulu. The Manoa renovations are expected to be completed by the summer of 2022.”

Family Treatment Services is the only licensed residential treatment facility in Hawaii that allows women to have their children with them during treatment for substance use disorders. They also operate a therapeutic nursery for children ranging in age from infants to 5 years old.
