Cassie is our Office Administrator and has been with the agency for over two years. She’s most likely the person you talk to you when you call our agency! She was born and raised on Maui

In her spare time, Cassie loves to make earrings, beach hop, and watch NCIS New Orleans.

Sports medicine was her college path but she fainted at the sight of blood, so she stopped that! A fun fact about Cassie is that she’s ambidextrous.

Mahalo nui loa for all you do for the Maui community, Cassie!

U=U means “undetectable equals untransmittable.” More specifically, it means that people living with HIV who have an undetectable level of virus in their blood due to treatment are unable to transmit the virus to others.

WHAT IS U = U?

WE CARE ABOUT YOU AND OUR MAUI COMMUNITY

We want to hear your feedback and suggestions!

MAUI AIDS FOUNDATION IN STEADFAST SUPPORT OF BLACK LIVES MATTER

Maui AIDS Foundation (MAF) stands in steadfast support of Black Lives Matter and our shared pursuit of a more just society.

At MAF, our work is predicated on people entrusting us with their health, sexuality, and details of their personal lives. Every person who enters our doors must be confident they will be treated with the utmost care and respect. However, in our society, it is clear that Black people are often not afforded the same level of care and respect as others. For that reason, we echo the refrain being heard around the world: Black Lives Matter!

 

MAF has always strived to serve those who are marginalized within our community. Marginalization, violence, and every other form of injustice are antithetical to the dignity of human life and the bonds of a healthy, thriving, and inclusive community.

 

Therefore, we call upon every person across Hawai‘i and the world to affirm with us that #BlackLivesMatter and to ensure all members of our society can live their lives with equal respect and dignity so we may all thrive as individuals and communities. We will not standby silently while any member of our society is systematically deprived of justice.

"There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about."
