Voyaging Together To A New Life:
A Handbook for Newcomers to Hawaii
As with other ethnic group newcomers, the Chuukese and Marshallese populations are faced with exciting yet challenging adjustments in their new home. The intent of this handbook is to provide an acculturation tool for those from the Freely Associated States. The handbook is written in different languages: English, Chuukese, Marshallese, and Spanish.
The handbook includes:
- The important role of the family in the home and at school;
- Caring for children
- Child safety in the home and in the community;
- Hawaii laws; and
- Low-or no-cost resources
This project is a partnership between: Department of the Attorney General, Crime Prevention and Justice Assistance Division; Department of Labor and Industrial Relations, Office of Community Services; Department of Health; Department of the Prosecuting Attorney, City and Country of Honolulu; and Goodwill Industries of Hawaii.
