The mission of Parents And Children Together is to promote and support healthy individuals, families and communities by creating opportunities for them to identify and address their own strengths needs and concerns and successfully realize their potential.
Hawaii is a peaceful and safe community, living as an ohana, successfully helping its members realize their dreams and full potential.
We believe all Hawaii's children deserve peaceful and safe environments in which to grow. We support families in encouraging their members to realize their dreams and full potential. We encourage PACT employees and volunteers to uphold families in an environment that fosters respect, teamwork and excellence. We believe in facilitating the development of community resources which honor the values and principles inherent in the concept of ohana.
Founded in 1968, Parents And Children Together (PACT) is one of Hawaii's leading non-profit organizations providing a wide array of innovative and educational social services. PACT helps families identify, address and successfully resolve challenges through its 17 statewide program in the areas of early childhood education, domestic violence prevention and treatment, child abuse & neglect prevention and treatment, positive youth development, community and economic development, and mental health support.
