Family Resource Center

Membership is free for East Hawaiʻi families and benefits include access to emergency supplies like diapers, wipes, hygiene supplies; a variety of parenting supports including coaching, classes, informal talk-story sessions; special events and activities; as well as guidance for families experiencing or at risk of homelessness.

Renters are encouraged to call the Coordination Center to get connected to financial resources and services or visit
