- Project Laulima, with support from Child and Family Services, is excited to announce that we will be providing a Team Up For Families-Family Road Map workshop for Kauai families, care givers and providers who have, or, support children and youth with special needs.
- The interactive workshop will focus on navigating health, education and insurance systems using the 5 Guiding Star points of: Setting GOALS, Learning SYSTEM BASICS, Building RELATIONSHIPS, Managing INFORMATION, and Finding SUPPORT.
- Participants will receive a free Guide book and activity booklet to use during the workshop and beyond. Providers will find these resources helpful to use with families on an individual basis or in small groups.
- Please help us to share information on the 9/7 event and forward the flyer to those in your network. We are also planning a training for Molokai on 9/15 and one on Oahu also in September.
