About the event
HUGS provides parents and caregivers the opportunity for much needed personal time away from the intense demands of caring for a seriously ill child. Free child care, for children ages 6 months to 12 years, is offered, where they have a lot of fun and attention, paired with a buddy in a safe, supportive environment, so that parents have time for themselves to do whatever they wish. HUGS also offers emergency respite assessed on a case-by-case basis based on need and staffing.
"Respite gives my husband and me a much needed break for a few hours. It allows us to work on the foundation of our family, which is us, the parents. Having a strong family foundation is so important when going through this unpredictable journey." — HUGS Mom, Stephanie Kozuma
"The HUGS house is my favorite place because it's fun." — HUGS Keiki, Zach, age 10
