    Home                A Web-based Repository to Hawai'i's State, Local, Federal, and Non-Profit
    Agriculture         Resources
    Arts
    Business               This compilation is a link for Hawai'i residents to resources that are offered by officials: State of
    Census              Hawai'i, the counties within the State, national and federal, and non-profit organizations to serve
    Courts              the public.
    Education           Practicum Goals and Objectives
    Environment            I proposed to create a web-based repository of resources about Hawai‘i utilizing mainly (but not
    Family              exclusively) official services and resources to serve the public. There is a lack of information on
                        combined services and resources within the state and local agencies. I wanted to develop better
    Children            access to the comprehensive resources in all levels within the local, state, federal and non-profit
    Teenagers           organizations.
    Adults                 In the last few years, the state and local governments have put information on-line, but there is
    Elderly             an overload of resources in a hodge-podge fashion. The attitude is to keep on adding information,
    Health & Medicine   but who manages it? We have all these resources on-line, but how do we find it?
    History                My parents live on the Big Island, and I live and work on O‘ahu. I called the state agencies on
                        the elderly to find what kind of services were available for them, who then referred me to the county
    Law
                        agencies. I would like a comprehensive website that offers state, local, federal, and non-profit
    Military            services to the different agencies. I have web access experience, yet found that the information
    Natural Disasters   was buried within layer after layer within the organizations.
    Politics-Policy        This project is based on a model of the PowerReporting webpage
    Real Estate         (http:www.powerreporting.com/). Created by correspondent Bill Dedman of the Boston Globe as a
    Recreation          research tool for journalists, PowerReporting lists resources from Beat by Beat to What’s New. I
                        localized my webpages and did not focus for journalists, but to the general public.
                           Topics (following PowerReporting) range from agriculture, arts, business and economics,
                        Census data, courts, education, environment, family (infant, children, teenagers, adults, elderly),
                        health, history, law, medicine, military, natural disasters and terrorism, politics and policy, real
                        estate and recreation. Each topic includes a one-sentence description and links to their
                        homepages.
