Hui (hoo’ee) is a Hawaiian term for a cooperative group working together for a shared purpose. Family Hui’s shared purpose is creating healthy, thriving families and communities.

Our mission is to support, encourage and empower parents/caregivers as they face the bliss and challenges of raising children. We celebrate the joys of parenting while learning to address the stress in healthy ways.

Family Hui builds and expands on the very successful Hawai’i based Baby Hui program, which served Hawai’i’s families for over 30 years. Joan Kreeger, a social worker with the Hawai’i State Department of Health and Lea Ann Mitchell, a member of the Junior League of Honolulu founded the former Baby Hui in 1982. Family Hui updated the program materials, expanded the program to serve families with children 0-5, and incorporated a school readiness component.

Family Hui is a program of Lead4Tomorrow, an international, public benefit 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization located in the United States.
