Kauai Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1992 in the wake of Hurricane Iniki. Since then, the affiliate has built 150 new homes and repaired/rehabilitated 29 substandard homes. Work continues on Eleele Iluna Phase II which will be comprised of 107 single-family homes.
In 2010, 18 homes were completed in Phase I of the subdivision. Infrastructure work could begin by early 2019 on the affiliate’s newly acquired parcel of 6.5 acres in Waimea on the island’s West side. This project is a partnership with a local developer who will provide 30 affordable rental units in addition to Kauai Habitat’s proposed 32 single family units.
Join us for a volunteer trip to one of the most beautiful destinations in America. On this Hawaii Village Build trip, you’ll help a family obtain a safe, decent and affordable home and experience Hawaii’s gorgeous landscape and rich culture.
Your team will help in most stages of home construction, from digging footings, raising walls and roofing, to finishing interiors with flooring or cabinetry.
During your time off, you can experience traditional Hawaiian culture through luaus, touring historic Hanapepe Town during Friday night Art Walk, visiting the Kauai Coffee Visitors center, relaxing at a beautiful beach, hiking along the Mahaulepu trail, biking the Ke Ala Hele Makalae coastal bike path and much more.
You’ll be hosted at a five-bedroom, three-bathroom volunteer house that has a full kitchen, laundry views and a distant view of the ocean. Prepare meals together as a team and dine out at local restaurants.
