Linda Santos, FPH President & CEO, was awarded the Loretta “Deliana” Fuddy Lifetime Achievement Award” at the 11th Annual Hawaii Conference on Preventing, Assessing & Treating Child, Adolescent & Adult Trauma on Thursday, March 13th. This prestigious award is bestowed on professionals who demonstrate a life’s career of advocating for victims of violence, and have been tireless in their efforts of making a difference in the community by advocating for the rights and caring of those in need. Linda’s lifelong dedication to children and families in foster care was honored by several hundred social workers and community leaders including Governor Abercrombie, who presented the award.

Later that same day, Linda Santos received a second Lifetime Achievement Award by the National Association of Social Workers-Hawaii Chapter, at their Annual Awards Dinner in honor of Social Work Month. The event was held at the Hale Koa Hotel. Also, the same evening, FPH’s own Chyomi Chow, Project Visitation Coordinator, was presented the Social Justice/Advocate Award, for her excellent work in providing sibling visitation for children separated through foster care.

Congratulations to our awardees!

HeART Workshop for all children and youth involved with FPH

45 children demonstrated their artistic talent at the HeART Workshop at the Honolulu Museum of Art on Sunday, April 1st. After a tour of the museum, facilitators instructors Eric Keli‘i Beyer and Emily McIlroy taught watercolor and oil pastel resist to the children and let them create their own masterpiece. HPU graduate students put together the event for FPH as part of their Communications class over the course of the spring semester. “I learned the importance of staying flexible to keep the event running smoothly, which is a valuable skill to learn for any profession,” said Tobias Becker, an HPU grad student who acted as the client liaison. Keep your eyes open for the launching of the virtual gallery tour of this event - Coming Soon!
