Empower + Encourage = Flourish

2020 was an unprecedented year, to say the least. Simple routines such as family outings or going to school were put on hold as the world waited for the latest COVID surge to subside. However, at the same time, we also witnessed concerted acts of kindness and compassion and were humbled by the outpouring of support from our communities. Eventually, courage replaced the word “fear” as we stood together and provided one another with hope, motivation, and fellowship. And we came to understand that we are not alone. Now, we need to share this compelling message with some of the most vulnerable in our community – the children and families involved in Hawaii’s foster care system.

 

For nearly seventeen years now, Family Programs Hawaii has organized a holiday celebration for our beloved youth, cherished families, and dedicated resource caregivers in foster care.

 

Please join us in supporting Family Programs Hawaii and the 23rd Annual Holiday Party in December 2021.

 

“If we want our youth to flourish, to truly become empowered, then let us allow them to experience the strength of what unlimited encouragement can do.”

 

Wishing you and your loved ones peace and joy,

2020 Recap – Thank You for Helping Our Keiki & Families Reach for the Stars

In August of 2020, no one was certain about what kind of future lay ahead. Suddenly, we had to ask ourselves, “How can we provide that same ‘holiday celebration’ for our foster keiki this December while dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic?” Yet, despite some challenges, unforeseen obstacles, and even a few disbelievers, we can now take a step back and remember the smiling faces of our families who attended last Sunday’s event.

On behalf of our staff, Board of Directors, and the foster community that we serve, we would like to thank you for all of your support, allowing Family Programs Hawaii 22nd Annual Holiday Party for Keiki and Families in Foster Care to become a reality on December 6, 2020. Together, we reached for the stars and created a unique celebration for nearly 350 Oahu families. Even against the backdrop of COVID-19, we fulfilled our commitment to provide the island’s foster youth with the opportunity to enjoy the holidays.

While remaining in their cars, families drove through the fun lane and received gifts from our supporters. Volunteers and staff passed out, not just one, but TWO large food boxes to share later at home. But the gifts from Santa were the true culmination of the event. Each and every keiki received hand-wrapped gifts chosen especially for them. Families left the drive-thru with happy memories and hope for tomorrow.

And it’s not too late. You can still help make it possible to continue to provide the programs and services that will enable Hawaii’s foster children to experience the true meaning of ‘ohana. Your gift will still create a joyful experience despite our current situation. And your contribution will still bring that star even closer within a child’s reach.

“Family Programs Hawaii has blessed our ‘ohana in so many ways but providing us hope and inspiration is what really stands out the most. The kids were so excited to be a part of the annual holiday party. When we arrived, volunteers were blowing bubbles, laughing, smiling, dancing. And they made sure that every family felt special … these acts of kindness brought a tear to my eye. Thank you so very much for everything, right up to that final wave goodbye.”
