Welcome to the Family Investment Center

As an organization, KIHA recognizes that the key to self-sufficiency and getting out of poverty is education. In today’s world, very few individuals are able to make a living, support a family and be self-sufficient without a High School Diploma, at a minimum. The Family Investment Center is funded to help parents and children focus on the value of education, physical activity and community involvement.

At the Family Investment Center School-Aged Program, activities are planned for children that address all modalities, encourage healthy choices and physical activity, and include a reading and writing component to reinforce what they are learning in school. An emphasis is placed on education and the need to complete high school. We provide homework assistance and reinforce the skills needed to complete homework and improve reading skills. We provide charter bus service to get children to school, recognizing the importance of daily attendance. We also take our children out into the community and wilderness of Kodiak through field trips, hikes and picnics. We participate in lifelong recreation activities like bowling, swimming, and skating.

We will support parents to participate in schools and help reinforce the importance of attending school every day, completing work assigned at home, and practicing reading skills daily. We will assist students in gaining new physical and social skills and provide access to drug and alcohol-free recreation opportunities.

Summer is here!

In the month of July, we took the kids to the Fish Tech Center and The History Museum. We learned about Survival, built Shelters in the woods, and took kids fishing at the Buskin River and to Pasagshack for a fun day out the road. We have one more month left of summer fun before school starts for 1st- 5th Grade at the end of the month. We hope everyone has a great rest of their summer!
