Resource Caregiver Trainings

Attend a training

Pre-Service and ongoing training's for all child-specific and general licensed resource caregiver homes is facilitated through a Purchase of Service (POS) CWS contracted provider, Catholic Charities Hawaii (CCH). As the needs of children in foster care change, different training options are made available to all resource caregivers. CWS works with the contracted provider to offer a variety of training options, including online trainings that are more convenient for resource caregivers to access that fit their schedules. Additionally, to prepare and equip resource caregivers to adequately care for children in foster care, evidence-based trauma and healing informed care continues to be the foundation on which trainings are developed.

You can also access on-demand trainings and register for upcoming trainings, at any time, through a mobile app for Hawaii's resource caregivers (Hawaii Foster Care Connections). Download the app for FREE in the Google Play or Apple's App Store.
