Child & Family Service President and CEO Howard Garval noted that the the nonprofit named its Leeward domestic abuse shelter after the Leis Family.

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. Howard is the nonprofit co-leader for the Early Childhood Work Group. * 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.

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.
