The fair, hosted by the County of Maui Committee on the Status of Women, is open to the public and designed to provide information about domestic violence and the support and resources available to the community.

“It’s up to us as a community to help stop domestic violence,” said Sheila Rae Kelley, Chair of the Committee on the Status of Women. “Our hope is that this event can offer hope and healing to anyone needing help in saying ‘No More’ to an abusive situation. We all need to be educated about the impacts as well as the resources that are available, because in truth, domestic violence affects all of our lives.”

Participating organizations for this years event include Women Helping Women, PACT (Parents And Children Together), Child & Family Services, the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney – Victim Witness Program, and Maui Police Department’s Domestic Violence Unit.

For more information on the event, contact Pili Nahooikaika at ph. 270-7855.
