Basics: Kalaeloa Safe House, Kalaeloa, Hawaii. The name means "Children of Promise." It was newly built in the vicinity of military barracks, on Hawaiian homestead land, and there is a big green fence around it. The boys are enrolled in a 6-8 months residency program. The House is run by Sterling, who received an undergraduate degree in Eastern Religions and Education, went to theology school at a Baptist Seminary in Louisville, before leaving Louisville to return to the islands. He felt that in Louisville or in the mainland states, you had to be male, white, and Judeo Christian to get ahead. Currently, there are 7 boys here -- ranging from 13 to 17 years old -- and 3 vacant beds. The majority are special ed and need more of a âhands onâ learning experience. They have to be referred by probation officer.
