The Pilimkaua Home Visiting Program provides Indigenous-centered services to support the physical, social-emotional, cognitive, and cultural health of your child and the whole family provided within your home and/or a community location. Our Pilimakua Home Visiting Program is voluntary, free-of-cost, and offered to expectant Indigenous families (American Indian/Alaska Native/Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander) with new babies and young children and living in King, Pierce, and South Snohomish Counties. As a part of Hummingbird Indigenous Family Services, we help provide a continuity of care for our families from other Hummingbird programs, as well as, welcome new relatives into the organization.
We are centered around pili, the ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi word for connection, and makua, which is the Native Hawaiian/Kānaka Maoli tradition of parenting and caregiving as a whole generation. Our Pilimakua Home Visiting Program strives to support Indigenous families in expanding our makua circles with their Home Visitor, our Hummingbird Indigenous Family Services organization, and our whole community.
