2021 Phantom Gala

Please join us in addressing child abuse and neglect in Maui County, as we host a “Phantom Gala” to support children in need.

Similar to our approach in 2020, our 2021 Phantom Gala event is designed to protect everyone’s health and safety and align with current Hawaii requirements and CDC Guidelines regarding indoor gatherings. We are hopeful that we can gather in October 2022 for our more traditional in-person Gala.

As children gradually return to the classroom and other activities, we are seeing the heartbreaking evidence of abuse and neglect since the onset of isolation due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As the hidden pandemic of child abuse and neglect continues to come to light, please join us in helping these children heal.

  • We are grateful for your generous and ongoing donations that have enabled the Friends to continue its mission during these unprecedented times. We anticipate that requests for support from the Friends will be greater than ever based on recent trends. Child Welfare Services reports a 50% reduction in reports of child abuse and neglect since the onset of isolation. Sadly, this decrease is due to children being at home, isolated from people who would file reports.
  • At the same time, the Friends of the Children’s Justice Center is seeing a 50% increase in requests for funding and support. We now receive requests from 43 other social service agencies.
