[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Kids Hurt Too Hawaii has been providing therapeutic services on Oahu for fifteen years, reaching over 3500 children. As a small non-profit that relies primarily on donations, it is a challenge to raise the funds needed each year. We are grateful to those who have supported the organization over the years and hope your continued support will make another fifteen years possible.
In collaboration with Asahi Shimbun Social Welfare Organization and Queen Lili`uokalani Children’s Center, a camp will be held on March 25-28 for 45 children who lost a parent in the 2011 Japan Earthquake and tsunami and 25 orphans on Oahu. They will share stories, learn ocean and land conservation, and engage in traditional Hawaiian games and crafts. The camp, called Camp Hoku Lele (shooting star), provides time for healing grief and trauma. It will help children find hope for their dreams.
The Real World Event, an independent living skills training for foster youth and at-risk youth, ages 16-21, will take place on April 30. This event is organized by youth leaders of the Hawaii Foster Youth Coalition. It grew out of ten years of surveying foster youth about their needs. With the help of volunteers, young people learn to budget for their needs and wants, find housing, and how to conduct themselves in a job interview. It includes hands on practice in a real world simulation, connecting with real world people in careers of interest to the youth, and great prizes thanks to many donors.
