Results: Government funding and contracts support some of PATCH's key programs and services. Government funding isn't enough to support all of our programs -- private funding and donations are making up the difference. So far, this year, fundraising efforts have been focused on a technology upgrade for our offices, as our previous system is defunct, and we are raising funds to support the rising needs of the lowest-income families, with programs to assist families to send their children to preschool, funding for extra training classes and recruitment services for child care professionals, funding for grants to child care business to purchase supplies and equipment, and more.
Target demographics: Families, children, child care professionals, and the community at large in Hawaii.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 10,000+
Geographic areas served: Hawaii, statewide.

I've just completed my final year of nine years with the PATCH Board - PATCH staff is incredibly dedicated to helping families in Hawaii find quality childcare. I first contacted PATCH many years ago to help find care for my then new born son - options were sorely lacking at that time. That's why when asked to join the PATCH Board I eagerly accepted, to better understand the challenges they face in attracting and training new caregivers & matching families with a caregiver who is right for them. Every year the number of caregivers and matched families has increased, training options have expanded and children are receiving quality care. The credit goes to a great staff and an active Board who pitch in to support the PATCH Team. PATCH will always hold a special place in my heart.

Let more people know about the great work they do - they are so busy delivering services to the community that only people who looking for childcare know about them. This non-profit helps the business community by allowing working Moms to focus knowing their children are well cared for.
