We are builders, building to end homelessness in Hawaii.
HomeAid Hawaii is a non-profit 501(c)(3) founded in 2015 by Hawaii's building and development industry to address homelessness. We provide pro-bono and deeply discounted construction, renovation, or housing development related services to Hawaii's non-profit homeless service providers. We partner to build and renovate housing projects across the entire continuum of care, from emergency shelters to transitional housing to permanent/supportive housing options. Every HomeAid Hawaii project includes support services that help residents move toward self-sufficiency, such as: education, job skills training, physical or emotional support, health care, trauma care, or substance abuse treatment. We also provide community outreach support to Hawaii's network of homeless service providers through our hygiene and care kit program, special events, and other partnerships. Since launching our housing and outreach programs in 2016, HomeAid Hawaii has completed 8 housing projects, and donated over $1.5 million dollars in pro-bono services to Hawaii's non-profit service provider industry and their clients.
There are currently over 50 companies donating their work and materials on our kauhale project. The value of their donations is over $1.1 million to date. But we're not done. As we move forward into construction, more companies will be donating their services and materials pro-bono, and we will continue our success in reducing the cost of construction.
The operator of the kauhale will be US Vets. They are still fundraising for operating costs and any donation we receive that does not go directly to construction or furnishings will be used by US Vets to cover operating costs of the kauhale.
Can we count on your support?
