At HomeAid Hawaii, we believe in giving back to our communities, and helping the most vulnerable of our neighbors. Homelessness isn't going to end itself. Each of us has an opportunity at some point, to make a difference and change the life of someone else. We are builders who are building homes to end homelessness in Hawaii. We donate our building industry expertise in professional services, labor, and materials to qualified non-profit homeless service providers.
Every HomeAid Hawaii project includes support services that help residents move toward self-sufficiency, such as education and job skills training, physical and emotional support.

RYSE Hawaii brought a community together to house homeless youth.
The newly completed RYSE Hawaii facility will provide emergency and temporary housing for up to 22 youth each night, with eventual placement into permanent housing using voucher subsidies. HomeAid Hawaii assisted with materials for the project through donations from Alexander and Baldwin and the assistance of ReUse Hawaii. This is our first project that utilized both new and re-purposed materials: closet doors provided barn doors for each room! LEARN MORE
HomeAid Hawaii is stepping in where government isn't: repairing roofs of shelters.
HomeAid Hawaii completed badly needed roof repairs to The Institute for Humans Services' Kaaahi Women's and Family Shelter. With the leadership of The Howard Hughes Corporation and Kobayashi Inc., Beachside Roofing donated $73,000 in roofing work to this project. The shelter housed 351 women and 92 families in 2017. We've received four applications for roof repairs in under two years; demonstrating the dire facility needs of our homeless service providers.
A new voucher program helps youth move off the streets, out of shelters, and into rental housing.
We helped 12 youth and 3 babies who moved into housing in November celebrate Christmas. In addition to trees, gifts, and dinners, we helped the youth settle into home life with basic necessities like those pictured here donated by Castle and Cooke HI and Kobayashi Inc.
