Our holiday party - which benefits foster children and resource caregivers - is officially set for December 3, 2017. We will have a Hawaiian holiday theme, and a new menu for the dinner! We are still on to host as many people as possible - but we need your help.
There are different tiers of sponsorship, and any donation helps. Wayne and I are “Elf” level sponsors, which feeds approximately two tables of ten. Again, any small amount donated helps. The link for sponsorship is here: https://family-programs-hawaii.networkforgood.com/projects/21206-donate. All donations in support of the Holiday Party are tax deductible.
Family Programs helps Hawaii’s children stay in healthy homes. Our focus areas are prevention, support and transition. We not only work with children in foster care, we help at risk families identified before the state steps in. Our partnership with Argosy University, and Dr. Steve Choy, is fundamental in building stronger, safer families. Our end goal is to put ourselves out of business through education and, when necessary, intervention. We have supported the State of Hawai`i as the foster care program evolved, and we continue to work for the benefit of Hawaii’s families. We also mentor children in the foster care system as they “age out” of the system, and prepare for their adulthood.
Our temporary foster home, Ho’omalu O Na Kamali’i provides temporary shelter to children who may need special placement. Our Family Strengthening Center (located in several places) helps families remain together. Nau E Koho helps Hawaiian youth entering college, Project Visitation enables siblings to see one another when placed in different resource caregiver homes. And we provide training and support to resource caregivers as well. To do this, we need your help.
As we move forward to the end of 2017, and the beginning of a new year, I ask that you consider donating to help Hawaii’s families at https://family-programs-hawaii.networkforgood.com/projects/21206-donate. They will be empowered by your support.
