Aloha and Mahalo Nui Loa for Visiting

At Blueprint for Change (BFC), we believe protecting our keiki (children) is not only a moral obligation, it is an investment that enriches communities for generations. Since incorporating as a nonprofit in 2000, we have worked to improve the responsiveness of child welfare services in Hawai‘i by developing and supporting a state-wide series of community-driven service delivery models known as the Neighborhood Places. Through this network, BFC joins together with caring communities to put the wellbeing of families and their children first. We wish to share in the responsibility for the safety of Hawaii’s youth by providing at-risk families with the tools they need to create a safe and nurturing environment for their children. We also strive to ensure that the child welfare system in Hawai‘i continues to improve by bringing the voice of the community into the policy making process.

The successful completion of our mission requires a community-driven effort to create and implement effective, integrated, and collaborative approaches for protecting children and families. was developed as a resource for compiling, organizing, and sharing the wide array of information that is used in our fight to eliminate child abuse and neglect. The sites main contributors will be staff and Board members of Blueprint for Change and each of the Neighborhood Place programs. We will also solicit input from relevant stakeholders, including, but not limited to, social service providers, policy makers, community advocates, and the families that we serve. Our goal is to foster a vibrant online community of individuals working together to identify challenges in preventing child abuse and neglect, and to create strategies for promoting the needs of families living in Hawai‘i.
