Habitat Breaks Ground on 10 Lahaina HomesAugust 16, 2017, 4:15 AM HST · Updated August 17, 12:45 PM 0 Comments
Habitat for Humanity Maui held a ground breaking and lot selection ceremony on Saturday for the 10 homes it will be building in the Kahoma Residential Subdivision in Lahaina.
Habitat Maui received 142 applications for single family homes it is building as part of the subdivision. Applicants were screened to ensure they met Habitat’s criteria to be a “partner homeowner,” and those who passed were entered into a lottery overseen by Maui County’s Director of Housing and Human Concerns, Carol Reimann.
Reimann, who was also present for the ground breaking and lot selection ceremony said, “Kudos to Habitat for making home ownership a reality for working families in Maui County. It was chicken-skin as families made their lot selections.”
Habitat Maui is raising funds to help build these 10 Lahaina homes, as well as a new home build in the Waiohuli Hawaiian Homelands upcountry and two renovations in Wailuku.
Habitat has also planned a 20th Anniversary Celebration fundraiser at the Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort on Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017. The event will include dinner, a casino room, a live rock and roll band, dancing, and live and silent auctions. Tickets are $195/person and come with $100 in funny money chips for the casino room.
