About Us
In 2007, to meet the needs of Hawaii families of children with special health care needs, the Hawai‘i Pediatric Association Research and Education Foundation (HPAREF) in collaboration with Family Voices of Hawai‘i, partnered together to form the Hilopa‘a Family to Family Health Information Center.
 
 
Family Voices of Hawai‘i, is a parent-run, state affiliate organization of Family Voices, a national grassroots network of families, friends and professional partners working to keep families at the center of children's health care.
 
HPAREF, a Hawai‘i 501c3 not for profit organization, seeks to pursue the vision of optimal health and well-being of children and youth in Hawai‘i.  It's mission is to support and promote research, education, and service benefiting the children and youth of Hawai‘i.
 
The name Hilopa‘a, was given by Kupuna Kahauanu Lake to exemplify the driving force behind the center, to"braid firmly"the service system for our children and youth
