The second phase of the Kahauiki Village project has started, and 30 formerly houseless families are in the process of moving into their new, sustainable homes! Houselessness has a significant impact on the health and well being of our keiki, including the parents’ ability to find jobs and retain steady employment. Reducing family homelessness can only be achieved through a coordinated and collaborative approach that provides at-risk families the help they need, when they need it the most.
Kahauiki Village is a groundbreaking initiative that maximizes public and private resources to implement a long-term strategy aimed to help houseless families attain and permanently retain homes for their own families and children, and obtain employment opportunities within walking distance for these parents.
The Windward Sunrise Rotary Club donated $200 to help support these resident families with a full home starter kit, including a microwave, to help the transition into their new homes and establish their new lives at Kahauiki Village! Mahalo to our club members for their support of this important Oahu initiative for our neighbors!
