Donate to support grieving children, teens, and families affected by the wildfire disaster through Nā Keiki O Emalia

Make a positive impact on keiki and their families while cultivating meaningful connections with others by supporting grieving children and teens

Nā Keiki O Emalia is seeking donations to support the needs of grieving children and families in Maui County.  Currently, we are also soliciting donations to offer long-term grief support to families affected by the wildfire disaster over the next several years.

Your donation will directly support our free-of-charge support groups, which include:

  1. Tailored group sessions for children and teenagers, offering a secure environment to express their emotions and navigate their grief.
  2. Experienced trained facilitators who lead meaningful activities, art projects, and discussions to help participants process their feelings.
  3. Peer support networks for grieving youth to connect with others who have faced similar experiences.
  4. Grief education to help participants understand that their emotions are natural and normal reactions to a death.
  5. A separate support group for parents, fostering a holistic approach to family healing.

By donating you help create a safe and nurturing space for grieving youth to express themselves, share their stories, and find a path to healing. Mahalo for your support!
