Kamaʻokū Kauhale

The Kamaʻokū Kauhale was designed to provide permanent housing for veterans experiencing chronic homelessness. Veterans experience homelessness at a higher rate than the general population, resulting from challenges such as PTSD and/or other mental health concerns. Built and opened in 2020, the Kamaʻokū Kauhale is operated by US Vets Hawaii, and serves up to 36 formerly homeless veterans or others in its single occupancy tiny homes. The kauhale sits on Hawaii state land and was true public-private partnership which brought together government, builder-partners, philanthropic donors, and businesses to bring the project to fruition.
