Child & Family Service (CFS) Family Centers are located throughout Hawai‘i in the areas of highest need and touch the lives of hundreds of families each year, including keiki, teens, moms, dads, and kupuna.
Family Centers provide an essential resource to communities, offering a walk-in, one-stop location for a multitude of services including help with food, clothing, information, and programs designed to strengthen Hawai‘i’s at-risk individuals and families. CFS operates Family Centers on the islands of Kaua‘i (Nana’s House & Hale Ho‘omalu), Maui (Neighborhood Place of Wailuku), and Hawai‘i Island.
CFS has served the social needs of Hawai‘i’s individuals and families since 1899 and is committed to helping them address life’s most serious issues – including trauma, abuse, and neglect – now and into the future. Family Centers play a key role in this mission and our vision of continuing to strengthen our family-centered, full-service model of care statewide.
Each of our Family Centers offers services designed to support the immediate needs of at-risk individuals and families, and strengthen their ability to live successfully in the community. Services are tailored to meet the needs of their local communities and include:
1. Food Pantries and Clothing Closets
2. Information and Referral Services
3. Financial Literacy Education and Employment Preparation
4. Parenting Education and Relationship Counseling
