By mobilizing Hawaii's building industry, HomeAid Hawaii provides assistance to qualifying local non-profits who provide shelter, housing, or services to individuals, families, and youth experiencing homelessness in Hawaii. Building industry members donate and discount services, materials, resources, or labor to bring down the cost of construction or renovations for an approved HomeAid Hawaii project.
