Marimed Foundation is a nonprofit corporation with a long history of serving Hawaii and the Pacific; growing and changing to meet the needs of our communities. Established in Hawai`i in 1984, Marimed Foundation is a IRS 501(c)(3) public charity. We operate experiential-based therapy, education, vocational, and community programs from our Kāne’ohe and Kahalu`u campuses to meet the needs of Hawai`i youth, adults, families and communities.
Marimed delivers ocean and land-based learning experiences that empower youth, adults and families and strengthen communities. At the core of each of these programs is our 96’ tall-ship, SSV MAKANI OLU, which serves as a platform for learning activities, skills-building, and extraordinary — potentially transformational — experiences. Guiding our services are our program graduates, families, agencies, staff and trustees.
Marimed’s programs are licensed and accredited to ensure the highest quality services and standards, including the Joint Commission, the Hawai`i State Department of Health and the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division. Marimed is a member of the Outdoor Behavioral Health Council, Association for Experiential Education, Association of Children’s Residential Centers, Association for Career and Technical Education, Hawai`i Youth Services Network and other professional organizations. Marimed was named the nation’s Sail Training Program of the Year by the American Sail Training Association in 2017.
