Children, Youth, and Family Services

Family is where Life begins, and Love never ends!


Family is central to the fabric of the Pacific Islander communities. Pacific Islander families have a distinctive identification due to their culture and beliefs. Their cultural identity is practiced at home, church, and other PI gathered for community events. However, our families struggle to navigate the complex educational and social-economic systems due to cultural dissimilarities, language barriers, poverty, and a sense of shame of being stereotyped. These challenges create barriers and discourage our families from seeking services to improve their current status and thrive.
