Child & Family Service (CFS) is all about family, and that includes taking care of our valued staff members!
CFS has been named a 2018 Best Places to Work by Hawaii Business Magazine in the large organization category. Each year Hawaii Business Magazine partners with research firm Best Companies Group to administer the Best Places to Work survey.

They work hard to meet the needs of our community, so we want to create a work environment where they feel appreciated and supported.”
