Children thrive when they are healthy, eat nutritious food and have a safe place to call home.

Homeless children: Hawaii has the highest homeless rate in the nation. It’s estimated that 1/3 of the homeless in Hawaii are children.
Unstable housing:  Many of our families may not be living on the street or the beach, but they don’t have permanent housing because they are staying with friends and family.  Moving frequently often distrupts a child's academic achievement.
High cost of housing for families:  60% of households with young children in Hawaii pay more than 30% of their income for housing.
Food insecurity: 25% of Hawaii's children often don't have enough to eat
Access to healthcare: children in rural communities do not have equitable access to preventative care or specialty services.
