Who We Are
We’re All About FAMILY
Our family-centered, full-service nonprofit has been at work in the community since 1899, and is dedicated to “Strengthening families and fostering the healthy development of children”. Through nearly 50 programs that welcome everyone from keiki to kūpuna across the Islands, we help Hawai‘i families address some of life’s most serious situations including poverty, abuse, and neglect. We prove our effectiveness with data and results.
We offer those who want to help themselves a chance to transform their lives, without judgment, and seek to help families sustain positive gains.
