About Us

Get to know the Friends of the Children’s Justice Center of Maui

The Friends of the Children’s Justice Center of Maui (FCJC) is a private, non-profit corporation, founded in 1989 by a non-partisan group of community and business leaders concerned with the social welfare of children and families who have been traumatized by abuse and severe neglect.

On an annual basis the Friends:
• Provides funding for direct services to more than 900 children
• Delivers over 2,000 Christmas gifts to children in need
• Distributes our annual prevention supplement via Maui News to more than 20,000 readers
• Reaches thousands of children and parents through community events
• Advocates in multiple forums for the children we serve
• Conducts an annual Fundraiser & Gala to raise support

We receive no Federal, State or County funding. Our funding comes from the Bradley and Victoria Geist Foundation, the Teresa Hughes Trust, and a wide variety of companies, foundations and individuals. We do all of this with one paid staff person, a working Board of Directors and many dedicated volunteers. We invite you to learn more about us and to help us through a tax deductible donation.
