Helping Hand is a weekly feature on HPR1 stations statewide and online here. Each Friday afternoon at 5:30 on All Things Considered, Helping Hand presents a one-on-one interview with an organization in the community offering assistance to the disabled and other folks who are among the most vulnerable in the Aloha State.  This week All Things Considered Honolulu Host Dave Lawrence speaks with Friends of the Children’s Justice Center of Maui Executive Director Paul Tonnessen.

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. They deal with minors who are victims of abuse and neglect throughout Maui County and try to assist them in a variety of ways to heal.
