Online portal launched for child caregivers
A state online portal was launched last week for people to apply to be licensed to provide foster and temporary care for children.
The link to the portal is rcg.hawaii.gov.
In a news release, the state Department of Human Services and Child Welfare Services said the new system will make it easier for applicants, as well as better match children with prospective families.
Staff will assess what homes are available in the child’s community or neighborhood so the child can maintain ties to his or her school and community.
The portal also will be used by community-based partner agencies that assist Child Welfare Services with supporting families.
