About Kaua`i Habitat for Humanity
Kaua`i Habitat for Humanity is a local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, an ecumenical, nonprofit, Christian housing ministry. Its mission is to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world – one house at a time on Kaua`i – and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. Through volunteer and homeowner labor, and donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses.
Kaua`i Habitat for Humanity features two main home building programs: New Home Construction Program and Repair and Renovation Program. Kaua`i Habitat for Humanity also operates ReStore, which sells new and used discounted building and construction materials and household items. Proceeds from ReStore support Kaua’i Habitat for Humanity’s mission to build decent, affordable housing. Since 1992 Kaua`i Habitat has built 117 affordable homes and made critical repairs to 22 existing homes for Kaua`i families whose household income is between 30-80% of the median Kaua`i income. Because the critical need for affordable housing continues to persist on our island, Kaua`i Habitat has pledged to scale up our capacity and build 100 homes before the next decade.
ReStore is owned and operated by Kaua`i Habitat for Humanity. ReStore sells new and used discounted building and construction materials, home improvement items, gently used furniture, appliances, clothing and household goods, to raise money for Habitat for Humanity. Proceeds from ReStore support
Kaua`i Habitat for Humanity’s mission to build decent, affordable housing.
