Thirty previously homeless families now have a place to call home! Kahauiki Village (located near Nimitz Highway) is a public/private partnership development with the State of Hawaii, the City & County of Honolulu and the aio Foundation. Together, we have built an affordable plantation-style community for previously homeless families. In January 2018, 30 families consisting of 115 previously homeless residents and their keiki moved in. Upon completion of this project, Kahauiki Village will be home to approximately 630 residents. I am inspired by this affordable housing project and hope to create more similar solutions like this that would alleviate homelessness along the Leeward Coast.
