Howard Garval, MSW, has been President and CEO of Child & Family Service (CFS) since 2006. The mission of CFS is Strengthening Families and Fostering the Healthy Development of Children. Under Howard's leadership, the 112-year-old, non-profit organization has itself developed and been strengthened. CFS currently comprises more than 30 social service programs statewide, with nearly 400 employees. CFS has an influential and committed Board of Directors and Real Property Board, and a 100-plus member Guild of enthusiastic volunteers.
As CFS President, Howard is responsible for setting the vision and guiding the mission of the organization, on behalf of Hawai`i's families-children, youth, and kpuna. He is also responsible for overseeing the leadership teams, who support the programs of CFS, as well as ensuring fiscal integrity, strategic planning, and engaging the Board of Directors and Real Property Board in stewardship, advocacy, and philanthropy. He also represents CFS in public awareness of human service related issues to the government, general public, and media.
Highlights of Howard's accomplishments at CFS include the acquisition of two smaller organizations now merged into CFS; a successful $7 million capital campaign to build a domestic abuse shelter and transitional housing program; creating a hui (group) of large non-profit leaders with mutual concerns for advocacy; advocating for State funding for Healthy Start when that program was threatened with elimination; serving on the CFS Cultural Diversity Task Force; serving on non-profit leadership panels and lecturing on executive leadership at local universities and conferences.
Howard was educated at Montclair State College in New Jersey and earned his Masters of Social Work from the University of Michigan. He is certified by the Executive Management Institute-Alliance for Children and Families and the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving and is a 2007 PONO Fellow (Promoting Outstanding Non-profit Organizations), a prestigious program for outstanding executive leaders in Hawai'i. Howard's career took him from a stint teaching high school Spanish, in the greater Boston, Massachusetts area, to a decade of social services, to vice president of family services for The Village for Families & Children, Hartford Connecticut, progressing to COO, then CEO of the non-profit organization.
Howard serves on the National board of the Executive Leadership Institute Alumni Connections, is chairman of Board of PHOCUSED (Protecting Hawai'i's Ohana Children Under Served Elderly and Disabled), and serves on the Oahu Workforce Investment Board and chairs the advisory board of the Hawaii Family Support Institute. Most recently, Howard, along with four other nonprofit CEO's, secured an endorsement of Governor Neil Abercrombie to develop a collaborative collective impact project with the administration and nonprofit organizations and PHOCUSED, called "Hui Kupa'a.

* When Hawai`i's "Ways to Work" program was scheduled to be discontinued by the YWCA due to a shift in their focus, recognizing this program as a "hand up" for clients being served through CFS, Howard worked to adopt the program from the YWCA and forged a partnership with American Savings Bank to provide loans for low-income families to purchase or repair automobiles so that they could get to their jobs or advance in their careers. In connection with that, classes in financial literacy are offered to those who apply for the program, as a means of strengthening financial awareness for families. Click here for more information on the Pathways to Work Loan Program. * Under Howard's leadership, CFS has been able to develop alternative funding models, decreasing its reliance on government funding. These models include social enterprise initiatives for the elderly, tuition assistance programs for students who might otherwise drop out of school, and diversifying private revenue streams through grassroots fundraising, commercial co-ventures/cause marketing, private grant writing, and building a $5-million endowment, with plans to double it over the next few years. * A tenacious advocate, Howard has spent many hours at the Hawai`i State Legislature advocating for all human service organizations in the state.

New CFS Hawaii President Howard Garval agreed. He recently moved from Connecticut, where he was the CEO of the Village, a child welfare operation focusing on prevention and treatment. He's been on the job here a short time -- only since April 17 -- but his professional life has revolved for 31 years around helping children.
His goals include building a strong leadership team from within the organization and attracting more private revenue, he explained while eating fried rice at Kakaako Kitchen with a few of his Big Island clients. The government currently supplies more than 80 percent of CFS's $33 million annual budget. This pays 800 staff members and funds 40 programs on all islands to strengthen families, serve seniors and ensure the well-being of children.
After posing for a group portrait with the kids, Garval said allowing them to see that "there's a bigger world than their island is an incredible, powerful thing to do."

Commentary By Howard S. Garval
...
Howard S. Garval is president and chief executive officer for Child and Family Service.
...
Howard Garval, the new president and CEO of Child and Family Service, is no stranger to diversity or working with children.
Aside from his 31 years of service in the social work field, he also taught Spanish at Dwight Morrow High School in Englewood, N.J., a place that, like Hawai'i, has racial and economic diversity.
Garval, who took over the nonprofit social service organization eight weeks ago, said begin a teacher taught him that young people often have serious problems in their everyday lives. He was inspired to do more for them than just teach a foreign language, and he decided to get his master's degree in social work.
"I saw a number of kids who had so many problems," Garval said.
...
Garval took over for Geri Marullo, who resigned as CEO at the end of last year after eight years with the organization.
...
Since arriving, Garval said he has mapped out immediate goals that include filling vacant positions, diversifying the organization's revenues and developing a new strategic plan.
He wants to increase the organization's private funding so that it does not heavily rely on government funds.
Also, "I'd love to see us build an endownment because we don't have one," he said.
Garval was attracted to the organization because it reaches statewide with a larger budget and it has more gerontology programs than his previous agency. Hawai'i's diversity also appealed to him.
"I'm comfortable in settings that are dvierse," he said. "I'm looking forward tolearning about the various cultures."
In the next three to five years, Garval hopes to open an inter-generational learning center, which was also a vision of his predecessor. It would be a place where grandparents and retirees could mentor and teach younger generations.
Garval said the organization is looking for volunteers. He strongly encourages students interested in social work and retirees to take part, get involved and make a difference.
As he tells his daughters, it's important "to give back to people who haven't had as good a life situation as you."
...
This second phase will depend on the success of the capital campaign, and on the leadership of the new chief executive officer Howard Garval, who started on April 17.
...
Howard S. Garval was named CFS president and chief executive officer by its board.
Child and Family Service is the state's largest nonprofit human service agency, serving more than 40,000 individuals and families. With a $34 million annual budget and 800 employees, the agency offers 44 programs for the needy on four islands.
Garval has spent 31 years in the human services field, most recently as president and CEO of The Village for Families and Children, Inc. The West Hartford, Conn.-based agency serves more than 5,000 children and families annually.
Before that, Garval was a district director for Family Service of Greater Boston. Garval holds a master's degree in social work from the University of Michigan.
Lori Lum, CFS board chairwoman, said board members chose Garval after a national search because they were impressed with his experience and commitment to families.
...
Garval said he shares Child and Family Service's mission of "strengthening families and fostering the healthy development of children."
