Child Abuse Prevention
The Ho’oikaika Partnership invites the Maui Nui community to join us in promoting activities that strengthen our ‘ohana, support the healthy development of keiki, and prevent maltreatment. While our work happens year-round, we organize special activities each April for National Child Abuse Prevention month such as:
- Co-sponsoring the Mayor’s Proclamation in partnership with the Friends of the Children’s Justice Center of Maui and sharing the Friends’ annual prevention supplement.
- Hosting the ‘Ohana Fest, a gathering for families and keiki to enjoy fun activities, receive concrete supports, and learn about community resource
- Special presentations for community groups and partner agencies to learn about child abuse prevention and the work of our coalition.Strenthening ‘Ohana and Preventing Child Abuse in Maui County
