Cribs Donated to Family Promise of Hawaii

Kyo-ya works to find creative ways to use its resources for the good of the community. When the company realized it had seven baby cribs that were going unused, Kyo-ya staff arranged for them to be donated to a community program in need called Family Promise of Hawaii.

Family Promise of Hawaii is a new and innovative program that helps families with children escape homelessness. Founded in Hawaii in 2005, the non-profit organization opened up its first Family Center in Kailua and in 2007 expanded to a second facility in Honolulu.

Through support from companies like Kyo-ya, Family Promise of Hawaii has assisted over 600 parents and children in its regular program and close to 300 in its day program. Eighty percent of families secured housing with an average length of stay of 81 days, which equates to more than 10,000 shelter bed nights and 30,000 meals served to Hawaii’s families in need!
