Every child deserves to grow up in a safe and nurturing environment, free from the violence and life destruction brought about by illicit drugs found in communities.
Unfortunately, many of children are often exposed to these very elements: Drug dealers, addicts, and the tsunami of crime and violence that accompanies them.
This ultimately translates into fear and anxiety from such simple things as walking to and from school, playing in the playground at their local park, going to the beach, even just playing in their own neighborhoods.
Growing up here, there was an auntie on every street in the neighborhood. The aunties have always been like family . The aunties were there to feed if hungry, provide a helping hand, a shoulder to cry on, or even scold us when we were out of line.
As a kid, you knew that you could go to any auntie’s house at any time and you would be safe.
Now, more than ever, we need the aunties! That is why they created the Auntie Drug non-profit organization, to empower Hawaii’s Aunties with the strong voice required to bring about real improvement in communities, in unwavering support of our keiki.
One voice, one body, one force.
When given the right tools, there’s nothing that the aunties can’t accomplish.
Auntie Drug’s primary mission is to provide education, resources, and support to help guide keiki toward a happy and drug-free life.
