DHS Director, Cathy Betts shared: “This is a unique opportunity to help the families of Hawai`i by providing non-custodial parents with employment readiness and options. This is the first time that DHS and CSEA have collaborated on a project like this and we are excited to see how many families will benefit from it.”
The Hawaii State Child Support Enforcement Agency is a division within the Department of the Attorney General and works in partnership with the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement and other State and local agencies to ensure that our Keiki (children) have the ongoing financial support of both parents, by providing a system for payments and disbursements of court-ordered child support.

The department provides services and benefits, including food/financial assistance, child care support, health insurance access through Medicaid, social services for children and adults, vocational rehabilitation, public housing, services for those experiencing houselessness, youth services, as well as administrative services and commissions.
