Check out INPEACE’s Parents as Teachers program on HI Now, which aired May 8 and 12, 2018 on both KGMB and KHNL. The parent and child development program was featured on the aloha state’s newest local lifestyle show, featuring inspiring stories.
PAT Parent Educator Claudia Quintanilla and PAT parent Maria Kahookele were showcased across all platforms of Hawai‘i News Now.
Claudia and Maria shared how the PAT program empowers and supports pregnant women and families in Waiʻanae, Kapolei, and Molokaʻi to become their child’s first teacher. Parents meet with a certified PAT educator for free regular home visits to gain knowledge in healthy births, health, nutrition, and early childhood and brain development.
PAT is featured as one of the latest meaningful, local stories with fresh, fun ideas to help local families live their best lives. HI Now’s content is designed to connect viewers with the best Hawai‘i has to offer, highlighting our one-of-a-kind locality and INPEACE’s PAT program is the perfect fit!
Mahalo to Jobeth Devera, Chimaine Pouteau and the entire HI Now team for their aloha! INPEACE was honored to be the first featured on the beautiful new set!
