AILH Quarterly Newsletter – November 2016

From the Heart: A note from Executive Director, Roxanne Bolden

Aloha Ohana,

Great job to the AILH employees for a successful ending of our Federal fiscal year!  I’m proud to know that although we have only been around for seven years, we are light years ahead of several IL Centers across the nation with regard to our utilization of social media and having an accessible website that is both mobile friendly and has a video explaining our services in ASL.  IL Centers are recognizing that we need to reach our younger generation and one way is through social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.  AILH utilizes all of those mediums and we are the first center to start a support group on FB for our Deaf and Hard of Hearing Consumers.

This year’s Staff Development Day enforced our commitment to work as a group.  This can be challenging when we are located on separate islands and do not get to see each other on a daily basis.  However, as Ryunosuke Satoro said,


“Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean”


When we each do our job on our respective islands, we are furthering our mission to help persons with disabilities live independently as a whole agency.



We hope that you have been keeping up with us on our blog for all the latest happenings at AILH.  For the first time, you can view our quarterly newsletter right here on our updated website blog.
