What is `Ele`ele Iluna?

A new subdivision of affordable homes built by Kaua`i Habitat for Humanity and our Homeowner Families.

Kaua`i Habitat’s founder, the late LaFrance Kapaka-Arboleda, said that in Hawaiian, the meaning of `Ele`ele Iluna is “to rise up from the darkness.” With this in mind, our affiliate vows to equip Kauai’s hard-working families with the tools necessary to bring themselves out of the darkness and break the cycle of poverty, thus becoming agents of their own change, through our self-build program and team build philosophy.

Where is it?

Located between Kaumuali`i Highway and Halewili Road in `Ele`ele on the Island of Kaua`i.

How can I live there?

All those interested in living at ‘Ele‘ele Iluna may call our Family Services Department at (808) 335-0296 ext. 115 to be added to our mailing list of prospective homebuyers. Those on this list will be notified via mail when informational meetings will be held and applications accepted.
