ITAO is happy to announce the launch of a statewide, virtual Book Club for Hawaii’s resource, adoptive, guardianship, permanency and kinship families. It will provide support to families and at the same time add to their expertise related to the needs of the children and youth in their home. The first book we are reading allows resource caregivers who read the book and complete the DHS Training Verification form to receive training 5 hour credits. Follow link for more information.
Follow this link for information and handouts from the “Smart Courage Program: Stranger Danger of the 21st Century for Teens” training held on Oct. 2, 2014. The workshop was presented by Kaleo Schneider, director of Hoola Na Pua’s Smart Courage Program. She has spent three years working with teens on prevention surrounding this critical issue.
We’ve assembled a list of some of the best books ever written about parenting, foster care and adoption and given you a link to purchase them online by clicking through from this website. When you do, ITAO receives a portion of the proceeds from that sale and from everything else you purchase on Amazon in that session, from books to computers! It’s a great way to support our work with foster and adoptive families.
