Words From Our Clients

Myshya Goings

“Mahalo GDH for all the goodies I received. The presents were like Christmas but even better. I have been using the magnifier to read the newspaper…especially the comics and feature stories. The measuring bowls and measuring cups are most useful when I cook. The Handivan coupons are a great help for shopping for groceries and visiting the doctors.”

Dominique Pelen-Lopez

“I love GDH. If I wasn’t part of GDH, I’d be so bored. Camp is my all-time favorite activity to join! I look forward to it every year. I love getting to see all my friends, do arts and crafts, and play games! I was sad that we didn’t have a sleepover camp this year, but I’m happy that we even got to come to the office for spring break camp.”

Yumiko Barry 

“Thank you for the thoughtful support! The iPad and its related accessories that you sent to Lorenzo via Teacher for the Visually Impaired were thoughtful and very useful tools. They brightened up his day and will surely enhance his growth and academic environments for years to come. He was very excited when he received it at school. He brought it home and could not contain his happiness, that moment was priceless for the whole family. As the parents of Lorenzo we whole-heartedly appreciate your support and will cherish the fact that Guide Dogs of Hawaii was so gracious in assisting our special needs son.”

Robbie Crouch

“Thank you guide dogs of Hawaii for providing me with the tools I need to succeed. I use these technologies for school and my own personal use. It’s helped me a lot in many ways.”


“I feel great about getting to come here for Halloween youth week. I’ve been having fun getting to meet new friends and do different activities. If I didn’t come here I’d just be watching tv at home. My favorite activity has been playing Portuguese horseshoes. It’s the first time I’ve ever played it but it was so fun.”
