Kauhale is a new approach to offer housing for neighbors who have experienced persistent homelessness. The development and operations of kauhale will be modeled (in part) after Community First Village in Austin, TX - a 51 acre master-planned community successfully housing Austin's chronically homeless population.


As a community-centered model, kauhale provide the opportunity to thrive for our neighbors experiencing homelessness. They are an answer to the unmet need and desire of neighbors who are homeless who seek a community to call home. HomeAid Hawaii is partnering with government to explore developing kauhale on available state land. Currently four parcels have been identified as possibilities. Check out our SPOTLIGHT below on a possible Kalaeloa Kauhale.

Kauhale SPOTLIGHT: Kalaeloa

HomeAid Hawaii assembled consultants to assist in preliminary findings and assessment for a state parcel in Kalaeloa which may be able to house between 40-60 individuals or couples in a tiny home kauhale with shared facilities and services. We continue to seek partners for this project. Please contact us to kokua.
