"Family is not an important thing, it is everything.” - Michael J. Fox
Children are Hawaii’s most valuable resource. They are our legacy. They are our future. Our goal is for every child to have the opportunity to reach his or her full potential. We are dedicated to strengthening children and families who are at-risk or involved in the child welfare system through high-quality prevention, support, and transition services
Our supporters make it possible for Family Programs Hawaii to continue our programs. A child's life changes by reducing the number of placements into out-of-home care. Parents create stronger families by learning the skills necessary for a stable and nurturing home. Children and families in need receive support through education, community resources, and advocacy. And youth leaving the foster care system are adequately prepared for the transition into independent, successful adults.
“I’m glad… We’re not all alone.” - Resource Caregiver (Foster Parent)
We believe it is the responsibility of the entire community to ensure the stability of Hawaii’s children. Through our programs and services, create better opportunities for our youth in foster care and provide a reason for each child to keep on dreaming. Together, we can help our keiki and families reach for the stars.
