About Kauai Economic Opportunity, Inc.

Kauai Economic Opportunity, Incorporated (KEO), is a non-profit 501(c)3 agency dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.

KEO seeks to alleviate the conditions of poverty by identifying and assisting in meeting the needs of low-income and economically disadvantaged in the County of Kauai to attain social and economic self-sufficiency.

Community Action changes people’s lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes America a better place to live. We care about the entire community, and we are dedicated to helping people help themselves and each other.

Founded on March 16, 1965, KEO began as a local community action program under the support of the Office of Economic Opportunity.

Now a multi-purpose organization with a variety of funding sources, KEO has helped thousands of individuals and families by providing shelter, emergency food, employment services, early childhood education, clothing, financial assistance and other programs. KEO offers innovative programs that encourage homeless adults to acquire skills to become self-sufficient.
