Habitat Maui is excited to announce that we have begun our next home build in Keokea-Waiohuli (Kula) in partnership with the Department of Hawaiian Homelands!
On Friday, February 5th, the Habitat Maui team along with the future homeowners, friends and family, fellow partner families, and volunteers came together to celebrate the first ground breaking and land blessing of 2022. Blessing and opening prayer was led by a close friend of the family followed by a productive day where the family worked alongside the community with digging and groundwork.
This home build is special to not only the future homeowners but also to another family and Habitat for Humanity supporter, the Henson’s of South Carolina, in memory of Allen Henson Jr. a Maui resident. Upon the passing of Allen Henson Jr., the Henson Ohana (family) looked for ways to give back to a community Allen loved and found Habitat Maui. Through our Gifts from the Heart program, Allen’s memory will live on and keep on giving for years to come – the priceless gift of a decent home for a family in need.
