Saturday, February 25, 2017 from 9am to 2pm

Ho’omaluhia Botanical Gardens

 

Every year, children in the foster care system face countless adversities as they are separated from their families and the familiarity of their surroundings. They suffer from disproportionately high levels of emotional and behavioral difficulties. Even worse, siblings are often separated from each other as the amount of available placements for these youth are limited in number and resource, putting additional strain on the already distressed children. Despite approximately 2000 children being in the foster care system, their struggle runs the risk of going unnoticed.

 

In collaboration with Family Programs Hawaii, a non-profit agency, we hope to bring awareness to these unique and sensitive issues while also helping siblings to strengthen their bond. We are hosting an event at Ho’omaluhia Botanical Gardens, Saturday, February 25, 2017 from 9am to 2pm for these youth.

Donations for the event are being accepted and you can share in helping these families maintain their connection across distances. These donations are tax-deductible and will go toward the event and helping to support Family Programs Hawaii in their work for this vulnerable population. Any support would be greatly appreciated.
