Helping Hand - Children's Alliance of Hawai'i

Helping Hand - February 13, 2015 complete interview with Children's Alliance Hawai'i

Helping Hand is a weekly feature on HPR1 stations statewide each Friday afternoon at 5:30pm and online here. Helping Hand puts the spotlight on an organization or event in the community that offers assistance to the disabled and other folks in need with All Things Considered Honolulu Host Dave Lawrence. This week we’re learning about the Children’s Alliance of Hawai‘i with our very special guests Jen Evans, a student and member of their board of directors, and Kent Coarsey, President/Executive Director of the Children’s Alliance of Hawai‘i.

According to their website, for over two decades they’ve been working to assist children in the Aloha State who have been victims of sexual abuse, working to provide long-term support and services. Their site notes that about 300 children are sexually abused each year in the state of Hawai‘i.
