Transitional Housing Project Overview
Aloha and Welcome to Project Hawai’i, Inc. transitional housing project.
This has been a long time vision and dream of our that is now coming to reality. The goal of our program is the be the final stepping stone to a brighter future for our families. This transitional housing project will allow our homeless families to take the steps to becoming future home owners!!
Ending their cycle of homelessness and poverty for generations to come.
The project will be located in Kea'au on the Big Island.
There are 3 dwellings being rehabilitated to include a large family home with 3 bedrooms to allow our families to have the room and experience to grow with healthy lifestyle changes needed to transition into a home of their own. The second unit is a 2 bedroom for our kapuna (seniors). We find that many elderly woman are left on the streets after losing their husbands, or even elderly couples have been displaced by family situations beyond their control.
And our last unit is going to be a dorm for college students to be able to earn their degree and move on to a 4 year university. The dorm units will also be equipped with a "therapy" life planning conference space that will include weekly workshops and mentoring.
We invite YOU to be part of their success and invest in the future of our community and the
homeless families we serve.
