HomeAid Hawaii emerged from Hawai‘i’s resolute building industry in response to homelessness.


Our mission is to help people experiencing or at risk of homelessness build new lives through construction, community engagement, and education.


HomeAid’s vision is to be a vital force in creating safe and dignified housing and programmatic facilities for those who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness.

At HomeAid Hawaii, we believe…

  • our community is stronger when every individual has a safe and dignified place to call home.
  • our community needs to think differently about how we define, build, and populate housing to ensure that it is truly available to everyone.
  • it is possible to create homes for even the most financially challenged individuals if we come together as a community to put community first.
  • that housing development must be grounded in the values and needs of the people it is designed to serve.

We believe in a Hawai‘i beyond homelessness.
