One in four girls and one in six boys are sexually abused before their 18th birthday! And that’s just the children we know of. Most children will never tell about their abuse. The Friends of the Children’s Justice Center of Oahu was founded as a 501(c) in 2010 to protect abused children in Hawaii from additional trauma and help them to heal. We support the Children’s Justice Center of Oahu, established under the Hawaii State Judiciary to provide comprehensive, coordinated interviews and forensic examinations for children who are suspected victims of child sexual abuse, extreme physical abuse and witness to crimes.
The Friends provides funds, resources and volunteers to help CJC maintain its warm, safe and neutral environment where a team of caring professionals come together to listen and act, while offering hope, encouragement and opportunity to Hawaii’s abused children. We strive to empower child victims so their voices are heard—one child at a time, in one place and just once!
