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. We have secured 3 homes on one property. Two of the larger homes will be able to house larger families to allow their children the opportunity to have space to grow and learn to be in a family situation. Our second smaller unit will be used to house our Kupuna with senior housing and be equipped with elderly safe amenities.
PROJECT DATES: May 5th-30th (clearing land/prepping homes) May 31-Aug. 5th Our volunteer teams start Monday-Thursday full-time. Our goal is to have all homes full by Christmas to allow the families to enjoy their first Christmas on their path to a new life!
We invite YOU to be part of their success and invest in the future of our community and the
homeless families we serve.
Project Hawai'i, Inc., was chosen as this years project for Humanitarian Experience for Youth. HEfY is a traveling group that typically builds homes and shelters in third world countries; however, with COVID restrictions they were forced to choose a US based nonprofit. There group will be sending 20-25 volunteer laborers to help assist on site. Each week we get a new team of volunteers. They will dedicate 8 hours a day Monday-Thursday to our site project.
There are many ways to make a difference!!
We are seeking all sorts of volunteers and skilled construction volunteers as well as donors, sponsors and company investors!

Furthermore once completed we will have company plaques with company names for each home.
