We Love our RSVP Volunteers

We were so excited to attend a luncheon where RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program) honored the many men and women on Island who make a difference in our community through volunteerism. Kaua‘i Habitat is but one of the many nonprofits on Island who benefit from the great work these individuals do. In particular, the steady contributions made by Loren Johnson and Guy Ambrose is immeasurable. Read more about the event and the many volunteers who make a difference in the article “RSVP honors its many volunteers” published in The Garden Island newspaper.

Helping home-buyers

Our goal at Kaua‘i Habitat for Humanity is to help those in need of a safe, decent and affordable house achieve the dream of homeownership. To achieve this goal it is imperative that we inform and educate not only on the need for affordable housing on island, but also on the process of attaining it. The need for affordable homes on Kaua‘i is great, and the process for applying can be intimidating, but we are here to help explain and walk those interested through the process. Please read the guest article in The Garden Island newspaper by our Executive Director, Stephen Spears, as he sheds light upon both the need and the process of obtaining a Kaua‘i Habitat home.
