About the Campaign

In partnership with the Joyful Heart Foundation, the Hawaii Children’s Trust Fund (HCTF) recently unveiled its statewide public awareness campaign, "One Strong Ohana":

Increase the awareness that child abuse and neglect is preventable and that individuals can make a difference.

Educate the public on ways in which they can increase the health and well-being of children and families using a strength-based approach.

Increase visibility of the Hawaii Children's Trust Fund as a leader and connect to other Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention services/organizations in Hawaii.

Change public thinking toward the belief that preventing child abuse and neglect is both an individual and a community responsibility.

 

There will be community events, PSAs, videos, news and multi-media outreach, including radio, online, and social media.
