Become a Foster Parent!
My name is Jennifer Slaughter and I am the Program Director for Maui Youth and Family Services (MYFS). MYFS was established in 1978 by Maui County as the Maunaolu Youth Residential Shelter to provide a safe place for Maui’s homeless, abused and runaway children. MYFS’ broad spectrum of services embraces young people and families in the community and addresses all types of needs related to physical safety, personal growth and mental and emotional stability and support.
We are currently looking for faith based organizations to help us locate Foster Homes for our Maui youth. We are in need of families that can provide a safe place for these adolescents to go to when they aren’t able to safely live with their birth parents. We want to ensure that every child has what we all want which is a safe and loving home. We offer support and training to the families who take on this special role. Foster Families help teach the adolescents how to trust, share, and give and receive love.
If you would please share the attached flyer with your congregation we can truly make a difference by matching those families who do have room for another pair of “slippahs” outside their door with a child in need. Please contact Che Arnold at 579-8414 ext 8305 for further information. We will be having a Foster Recruitment night on January 15, 2020 from 6-7pm at MYFS Campus upcountry.
Mahalo for your time and attention to this very important need.
Peace and Joy this Christmas Season,
Maui Youth and Family Services
