Promising Minds

Supporting the healthy development of vulnerable young children in Hawaii

Negative experiences in the lives of very young children (ages 0-5) can impair their mental and physical health and interfere with their future wellbeing. In Hawaii, too many children do not get the screenings, support, or treatment to protect against challenges down the road.

HCF has identified the wellbeing and development of our children under age five as a critical community issue at the heart of strengthening Hawaii’s communities. Promising Minds is a three-year initiative dedicated to improving early childhood behavioral health in Hawai‘i by investing in the future of our keiki, especially those at-risk of trauma, abuse and neglect, or dealing with their aftereffects. Promising Minds will help to strengthen early relationships and healthy development to set the foundations for long-term benefits to individual children, parents and caregivers.
