Eleele Iluna Subdivision

A Habitat Halloween

Our ‘Ele‘ele Iluna subdivision is more than just a subdivision; it’s a community! Thanks to the efforts of our Homeowner Engagement Coordinator, Pomaika‘i Brown, our homebuyers and their families had a safe and fun Halloween Trunk-O-Treat Block Party and Potluck! With donations of pumpkins from Dow AgroSciences and candy from Payton Plumbing and the Cruz family, our homebuyers transformed the neighborhood into a Halloween spectacular! Even with the rain, the keiki had a wonderful time and all left with a pumpkin, a smile and lots of treats.

Building Community

Our ‘Ele‘ele Iluna subdivision is more than just a bunch of houses, it’s a community! Thanks to Pomaika‘i Brown, our Volunteer and Homeowner Engagement Coordinator, neighborhood events like next months Halloween block party are on the rise. It’s important to us at Kaua‘i Habitat for Humanity that we build more than just houses, we build communities where families can grow and thrive.

Mahalo KBR

A big mahalo to the volunteers from Kaua‘i Board of Realtors!! This awesome group spent the day prepping homes for paint in our ‘Ele‘ele Iluna subdivision! We are so appreciative of KBR! It’s through partnerships like these that we are able to provide truly affordable homes!

Dow AgroSciences, LLC has been a long time partner of Habitat for Humanity. For our local affiliate this corporate partnership not only provides much needed funds and volunteer labor for our projects, it also serves as an example for other companies on island. Corporate sponsors like these are essential to keeping home prices truly affordable on Kaua‘i. Read the great article published in The Garden Island newspaper highlighting the commitment of Dow to those in need of a safe, decent and affordable place to live.

Women Build Success

On Saturday, May 6th, 2017 more than 20 female volunteers spent the day building homes and hope with Kaua`i Habitat! It was all part of Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build week sponsored by Lowe’s Home Improvement. The entire day was a big success!! Not only did volunteers bring lots of food and fun to the jobsite, they also completely framed enough walls for two houses in our ‘Ele‘ele Iluna subdivision!! We couldn’t be more proud of all the volunteers that made this event a huge success.

No Slowing Down

Even though we have just seen two new families move into their newly constructed Kaua‘i Habitat homes, we’re not slowing down one bit. Foundation work is well underway on the next homes in this phase of the ‘Ele‘ele Iluna subdivision.

Sneak Peak

Our newest group of future homeowners received a sneak peak of what their new homes may look like at our ‘Ele‘ele Iluna subdivision. This group of fourteen families were able to tour a nearly completed home from the previous phase of construction. It was a way for them to see the layout and ask questions about the different finishes their new homes may have.  What an exciting time for these families! It was great for them to see the end result of what the next several months of hard work will produce.

Groundbreaking at `Ele`ele Iluna

Today we celebrate! Soon infrastructure work will begin on Phase IIB of our `Ele`ele Iluna subdivision. This means more families on Kaua`i will have access to a safe, decent and affordable home. Today we held a groundbreaking ceremony to kick off this phase which will provide an additional 59 buildable lots in the subdivision. img_0327img_0332img_0330img_0339

Welcome to the neighborhood

Two more families closed on their homes in our `Ele`ele Iluna subdivision this week. We are so happy for them. Seeing the houses go up is good, but watching the families moving into their new homes is great! Welcome to the neighborhood!!! Certificate of occupancycertificate of occupancy edit
