We asked our programs what they need to better serve our children and families. The outcome was a wish list of goods, services and volunteer efforts that will make a   significant difference in the lives of the people we serve.

Community partnerships  bring support, resources and opportunities and give the community a way to make a positive difference in the lives of our most vulnerable children. You can become a Community Partner and help with some of our greatest needs. Many of our 10 nonprofit programs and their clients have needs in common. If you are a business, service group or individual who has something to offer, please contact Lorraine   Gershun at (808)387-9284 or [email protected]
