Don’t miss our 2nd Annual Recognition Dinner, coming up on Friday, May 5, 2017 at the Hilo Hawaiian Hotel’s Moku’ola Room! We’ll be honoring three special people. This year we have Roselyn Viernes, Dale Tokuuke and Drucy Casburn. Tickets start at $65 and proceeds will help the FRIENDS support our abused children in East Hawaii.

Many of you donate individually to help the FRIENDS help the keiki. But sometimes we get special help from local businesses!
Sleep Train donates needed supplies to the FRIENDS.
What do keiki need to go to school? Backpacks, school supplies and SHOES! And that’s just what the local Sleep Train donated to the FRIENDS.
The FRIENDS join with the Exchange Club of Hilo to support a “Prevent Child Abuse” event at the Mall.
FRIENDS Volunteers and Board members manned a table at this event and distributed information about the FRIENDS and the CENTER.
Every year, the FRIENDS provide Gift Cards for TEENS.
It seems that other organizations, like Toys for Tots, help younger aged children… but who remembers the TEENS? The FRIENDS, that’s who!
On October 25, 2016, the Friends of the Children’s Justice Center of East Hawaii became the most recent beneficiary of Ohana Fuels’ ‘Fuel Up. Do Good’ program.
BISAC (Big Island Substance Abuse Council) knows how stressful it can be for a child who is being removed from their home… or one returning to their home after being in Foster Care. These “Therapy Bags” contain a Stuffed Animal”, some kind of activity (like a coloring book and crayons) and more. The children now have something that is “just their own” to keep with them. Mahalo, BISAC!
It’s great when one local non-profit can help another… and that’s what the Friends of the Zoo did when they donated really cute plush frogs to the FRIENDS. Keiki visiting the Center can select one of these frogs as their special item. Mahalo Friends of the Zoo!
Thanks to Orchid Isle Ford’s generous bid during the FRIENDS Annual Recognition Dinner, several keiki were able to visit this Firehouse and eat lunch with the Firemen. Mahalo Ford and the Firehouse!
