Description
An affordable plantation-style community for homeless families, Kahauiki Village is a unique public/private partnership development with the State of Hawaii, City and County of Honolulu and the aio Foundation. The development includes designated areas for vegetable gardens, fruit trees and fish farms that not only will offer economic relief for its residents, but encourages food sustainability. Common areas for social service programs and recreational activities will be available to provide on-site treatment while encouraging fellowship and shared experiences. By developing a true community rather than just a series of homes, Kahauiki Village offers Hawaii’s homeless families much-needed stability, shared resources and a strong network of neighborhood support.
