HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Between 30 to 40 percent of adult abusers were abused as children, and research clearly shows that abuse is a learned behavior. Children who are abused and receive no therapy, no assistance, no support from the community can often repeat the abuse when they become parents and adults. The Friends of the Children's Justice Center of East Hawaii seeks to help by providing funds for requested items and services that have a powerful impact on their lives. 

The Friends strives to help child victims of abuse with small but critical needs at crucial times in their lives. It hopes to restore their self worth and make them feel “normal.” And by normalizing their lives, it hopes to direct them away from repeating the same abusive behavior.

Jennifer Robbins spoke with Robin Benedict of Friends of the Children's Justice Center of East Hawaii to find out more.
