Alienum phaedrum torquatos nec eu, vis detraxit periculis ex, nihil expetendis in mei. Mei an pericula euripidis, hinc partem.

Chaley Diarte

Chaley comes from Ogden, Utah where she worked in a school district in numerous positions such as behavior specialist, cheerleader coach and STEM tutor.  She also worked in a juvenile secure facility and a youth homeless shelter.  She moved to Colorado with her husband in search of new experiences and found Kokua.  In her spare time, Chaley can be found reading books and listening to music.  Her diligent help in school with Kokua clients is instrumental in their achievement.  Charley’s natural charm adds a spirit of joy to the Kokua environment and she really enjoys working with the clients as a Resident Mentor.

I was a supply Sergent for 10 years, I was a recreation aquatics coordinator and youth outreach mentor for over 10 years. I like being part of a team like Kokua because of the great environment and activities it offers the youth. B.S. In recreation management.

Ken Huey

Upon graduating from Purdue with a Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy, Dr. Huey worked as a therapist, Clinical Director, and Business Development Director in residential treatment. Dr. Huey was always drawn to the large population of adoptees in residential treatment (he is adopted himself). He ultimately became convinced that this population needed specialty care and in November of 2006, Dr. Huey founded Calo. Calo grew to a 200 plus employee organization with about the same numbers of teen clients served each year. He sold Calo and retired in June of 2015. He came out of retirement in 2017 and founded Kokua Recovery, trauma-informed residential drug and alcohol treatment with sites in Colorado.
