Moms & Tots

Led by St. Michael the Archangel Church featuring speakers Cynthia Taylor and Thelma Bacxa

September 27, 2017

Diapers are as essential to a baby or toddler's healthy development as a mother's love.  Keeping infants and toddlers clean, dry and healthy is vital in building a strong foundation for a child to reach their full potential.  Homeless families are faced with so many needs, especially the items they cannot purchase with food stamps.  Moms need feminine hygiene products and the family needs diapers and toddler pull ups for their youngest children.  Learn how to start a Moms & Tots  ministry.   You'll garner ideas, understand the financial impact and even put kits together as an activity.  Learn how to become involved in the emergence of Hawaii Island's engagement in the National Diaper Bank Network.  Learn how your faith group and family can make a difference by joining this team!

Welcome Home Basket

Led by Shorebreak Church featuring speaker Margi Powell

September 27, 2017

The Welcome Home Basket ministry has been operating through Shorebreak Church since last year's West Hawaii Faith-based Summit to End Family Homelessness.  This ministry provides a welcome home basket when a homeless family is finally able to move-in to an apartment or rental unit.  The basket contains many items necessary to set up housekeeping and cooking again for the family.  Most homeless families must start all over with nothing because all their resources have been garnered just to be housed again.  Learn how to ease the transition of homeless families by joining the team at Shorebreak or by starting your own ministry!  You will learn by doing as you discover what items are most requested and the average cost.  Join with others as you assemble baskets during the break out group.  Want to be involved?  Learn how your faith group and family can make a difference by joining this team!

First Aid Kits: More than Skin Deep

Led by the summit coalition featuring speaker Monica Hallquist, RN

September 27, 2017

For the homeless, adequate wound care is essential to a healthy life. The homeless population is much more susceptible to injury. Even if the injury is small and superficial, it can quickly lead to an infection. If the infection is not treated early, it can spread into surrounding tissue and then into the bloodstream, which can lead to death.   We can help prevent this with first aid kits!  Learn what signs to look for when treating a wound.  Learn what items are needed for wound care outreach to homeless families.  Join the team to insure that kits are ready year-round.  Learn by doing as you assemble First Aid Kits in the break out with others.  Learn how your faith group and family can make a difference by joining this team!
