The Friends’ VISION and MISSION focus on helping the children of abuse in East Hawaii and preventing child abuse in the future.
OUR VISION: To help abused and neglected children of today break the cycle of abuse tomorrow.
Did you know that 30%-40% of adult abusers were abused as children?
Research clearly shows that abuse can and is a learned behavior. Children who are abused and receive no therapy, no assistance, no support from the community can often repeat the abuse when they become parents and adults.
OUR MISSION: n partnership with the Children’s Justice Center, the FRIENDS exist to meet the needs of abused and neglected children of East Hawaii. We focus our efforts on helping child victims with resources and hope, while striving to educate the public about child abuse.
The FRIENDS work to help child victims of abuse with small but critical needs at crucial times in their lives. We hope to restore their self-worth and make them feel “normal.” And by normalizing their lives, we hope to direct them away from repeating the same abusive behavior.
Children who are abused or in foster care often feel different than other children. With support of grants and donations, the FRIENDS help these children feel “just like their friends”!
