Local Connection: Homeaid Hawaii

One reason homelessness remains a problem in Hawaii is that many non-profits serving the poor do not get enough money from the government to do what they need to do.

With funding not keeping up with caseloads – these agencies often struggle to keep their own facilities in working order.

That's where HomeAid Hawaii has stepped in.

Through HomeAid Hawaii, leading building and development companies are contributing material, time and treasure to help nonprofits renovate and repair their facilities.  That enables the agencies to apply more energy and resources to their missions.

HomeAid brings big names to the plate – David Striph of Howard Hughes Corporation… developer Stanford Carr and Castle and Cooke's Harry Saunders.

We appreciate their work and their message -- that those who benefit from our growing economy… have a responsibility to help those left behind.
