Habitat for Humanity Hawaii Island

What We Do

Habitat For Humanity Hawai’i Island is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.  Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.

Habitat For Humanity Hawai’i Island has an open-door policy.  All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people.  In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion.  As a matter of policy, Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations do not proselytize.  This means that Habitat will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must either adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.

Who We Are

Habitat For Humanity Hawai’i Island is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope.  It was established in 2017 with the merge between Habitat for Humanity West Hawaii and Hale Aloha O Hilo Habitat for Humanity.  This new partnership renewed a commitment that both affiliates had made to the residents of Hawai’i Island to help families to build a brighter future through homeownership.
