LOCATION

Hilo, Hawaii

Our program is based in Hawaii, and our surroundings play a large role in our therapeutic practices—from horticultural therapy to outdoor recreational activities and the communities our students serve. Pacific Quest operates on a 25-acre farm with residential homes and facilities.

Reed’s Bay Facility

Pacific Quest at Reed’s Bay sits on a 5-acre waterfront property. The 8,000 square-foot facility includes a large commercial kitchen and simple but modern sleeping quarters. A portion of each student’s stay takes place at our tropical farming site, where students learn gardening skills and set their own goals for their success in the program.

Homes

Situated in an agricultural community just 15 min southeast of Hilo, our three well-equipped homes provide a platform for community living. View more photos >  

The Farm

Set 20 min southeast of Hilo, our 25-acre organic farm—formerly an orchid farm—is a horticulturalist’s playground. View more photos >

Our daughter went to Pacific Quest (PQ) in the spring of 2018. She suffered from depression and anxiety. Regular therapy at home was not enough and we heard about PQ. We were very reluctant to send her away from home. However, the staff made us feel better about the decision. Now, we know it was the best decision we could have made. It changed her life! The healthy living made a huge difference. The on-going therapy with Andrew Vispo (who was absolutely fantastic) helped her immensely and helped us. We will be forever grateful to PQ, Andrew and the rest of the staff.
