“Our annual report theme, “Connecting the Dots”, is rooted in the belief we serve our community best by collaborating with partners who share our mission and values. By connecting families to child care and financial resources to pay for it, we give Hawaii’s children the opportunity to succeed… (and) elevate the quality of care available.” ~ Cheryl Nishita, Board President
