Happy Father’s Day

How will you honor the men that have made a difference in your life?

Father’s Day is a day to celebrate the contributions that fathers and father figures make in their children’s lives. On this day why not honor the men who have made a difference in your life by helping a deserving family secure their future by achieving their dream of home ownership. Home is where the start is! Children who grow up in their own home do better in school, have fewer behavioral problems and have a decreased reliance on government assistance. This Father’s Day honor the men that gave you a helping hand by doing what you can to help someone in need. Click here to Donate to Kaua`i Habitat for Humanity!

Fun in the Sun

This past Sunday, June 11th, our future homeowners got together for some fun in the sun at Salt Pond beach park. Our Homeowner Engagement Coordinator, Pomai Brown, met with the group of families that are currently building their homes with Kaua`i Habitat, for food, fun and games! The kids were busy with water balloon fights, a bounce house and relays, while the adults enjoyed fishing, horse shoes and swimming. The homeowner builders were then challenged with a construction game where they were asked to construct the tallest structure they could in 15 minutes, using only spaghetti and mini marshmallows to support a tennis ball. It was truly a great day of BUILDING ALOHA!!
