A new web-based portal was launched this week to modernize the licensing process for resource caregivers, also known as foster parents. The State Department announced today.
The DHS said the new child welfare service process will switch from a paper process to a “simpler, more efficient and user-friendly” process for applicants. It also optimizes the matching process by identifying caregivers based on the needs of the child.
“The health, well-being and safety of the serviced children and their families are at the heart of everything CWS does,” said Daisy Heartsfield, director of the Social Welfare Department, in a statement. “CWS wanted to provide better service to foster children. This new portal will modernize the entire licensing and application process while providing a stable, safe and affection for foster children and adolescents. Increase the number of qualified Hawaiian resource caregivers who can provide a home with. “
Applicants will be matched based on “best for children” after completing the online process and being approved to obtain a license, DHS said. The staff can then evaluate the homes available in the children’s community and neighborhood and stay connected to the school and community.
The portal is also used by community-based partner institutions that help CWS support families and enhance collaboration between institutions and DHS. The ministry said it was always looking for qualified people who were interested in becoming long-term caregivers.
