Release: New website provides a map of local resources to help families with COVID-19

HONOLULU, March 27, 2020 — Families can find local child care options, food resources, screening sites, online activities, and more on a new, easy-to-use website, covid19.hawaii-can.org.

“The community response to COVID-19 has been incredible,” said Deborah Zysman, Executive Director of Hawaiʻi Children’s Action Network. “We want to help by making it easier for families to find and access all of these new resources.”

The website is free and mobile-friendly. Users can choose to view resources by island or category.

The website will be updated as new resources become available. The public is invited to contribute new resources by emailing info@hawaii-can.org. Other companies and organizations are also invited to embed the map on their own websites.
