On the west side of Oahu, a village of 250 people are working to create Hawaii’s first community based solution to homelessness.
As we celebrate ten years of donating to Hawaii’s local nonprofits, we want to mark this year by supporting an inspiring community that is building a village the first of its kind. Pu’uhonua O Waianae, gives people and families a community they can be a part of. With that comes a sense of purpose and hope created by this feeling of belonging. Their groundbreaking approach is a model for how Hawaii, and perhaps our country, can answer the homeless situation.
Two-thirds of the residents at Pu’uhonua O Waianae are Native Hawaiian. Our company is deeply rooted in the culture & history of Hawaii. Who we are, what inspires our craft, and what is reflected in our work comes from our island home. We are also a family business and are so grateful for the support and ohana we share with you. We hope to do our small part to help those most in need create a better future and find a sense of place.
