Hawaii Man Helps Youth Deal with Grief
Cheers to the Honolulu Weekly for honoring Masahiro “Hiro” Ito, a Hawaii man who works with youth dealing with grief. Ito was orphaned at age 3 and did not deal with his loss until college when he broke down while watching a video on children and grieving.
”That was the beginning of my grief work,” Ito says.
Ito received a master’s degree in social work from the University of Hawaii at Manoa and co-founded Kids Hurt Too and the Hawaii Foster Youth Coalition (HFYC), under the Outreach for Grieving Youth Alliance (OGYA).
