Marcus House
Special Treatment Facility
Residential Program
History
The Marcus House Program was established in November of 2007 in
Honolulu and relocated to its current location in Waiahole, Kaneohe,
Hawaii in July of 2009.

Marcus House is a unique Special Treatment Facility, located on a
beautiful property in Waiahole, directy across from the famous
"China-mans Hat".

Patricia J. Dukes, Executive Director of Loveland Academy, originally
established the program for the use of one student at the Academy,
but has since changed the facility location to accommodate more
students and their full-time therapeutic aides and caretakers.
The Program
Marcus House focuses on the needs of youth and young adults with
Autism and related developmental disorders. The residence in
Waiahole provides a safe and comfortable environment for students
who need 24-hour care in and out-of-home placement. Students are
under the close care and supervision of therapeutic aides who foster
a family style environment while teaching life skills that help students
become more independent in the future.

Residents have access to a number of services, provided by staff
members who specialize in occupational, mental health and speech
therapies.

Residents will participate in numerous activities outside the facility,
which may include community outings to beaches, hiking trails,
restaurants, movies, and shopping centers. The program will
emphasize living and working "green", as students learn agricultural
skills while caring for their environment.
