Tūtū & Me and Hui Ho‘omalu Staff Participate in the East Side Family Summit on the Island of Kaua‘i

Family values and strong families are at the heart of strong communities.

This was the belief of late Kaua‘i mayor Bryan Baptiste, who got Bridget Arume to start the family summit program where families from different regions of the island could come to find resources available to help them build stronger families leading to forging stronger character in children, the leaders of tomorrow.

That was six years ago, and on Saturday, Arume celebrated the sixth anniversary of the Eastside Family Summit, joined by Kaua‘i Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr., Lt. Gov. James “Duke” Aiona and a host of other community leaders.
