About Prevent Child Abuse Hawaii
Prevent Child Abuse Hawaii was started by a group of human service providers who became convinced the community needed a voice dedicated to child abuse and neglect. In 1982, this group became the Hawaii Chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America (one of 50 chapters Nationwide) and in 1987, became a participating agency of Aloha United Way.
Prevent Child Abuse Hawaii is continually reviewing ways to bring awareness of child abuse and neglect as it is a year round commitment. It needs to be heard that an estimate of 5,000 children in Hawaii were reported abused or neglected with 50% or the reports confirmed. Through public awareness, community education and support programs these numbers can be reduced.
Through a wide range of activities, Prevent Child Abuse Hawaii, is developing ways to offer every community an opportunity to join this movement. We all must work together to make this vision a reality.
