We at ITAO believe strongly that “Knowledge is Power”, thus work to bring the information you need as a resource family to you. In particular, we believe that information about your foster child and the case plan is necessary for you to have so that you can provide the best care for each child in your home. In light of that need, we worked with the Hawai`i Department of Human Sevices to put together a “Information Resource Caregivers are Entitled To”. Follow link to download and print.
In January of 2015 ITAO worked with DHS to update the list of phone numbers that resource caregivers may need in the course of fostering the children in their care. Follow this link to download the Who-To-Call list.
We send a big MAHALO to each and every person who steps up to the plate to help children and families in need and hope that this information is helpful to YOU!
