Disaster Recovery

We’ve got help.


Unprecedented and record-breaking flooding across our island on April 14, 2018. Various communities including Koloa, Lawai, Anahola, Keapana, Hanalei, Wainiha, and Haena were affected or majorly damaged as a result of the heavy rains and flood waters. At least seven homes have been reported as destroyed.


Thankfully, our community rallied together, and with the help of residents, neighbor islands, friends near and far, Kauai persevered through the early days and weeks of disaster relief work which entailed ensuring people’s safety, organizing food and water supplies, and cleaning out homes and land.


Through the generosity of donors like Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, Hawaiian Airlines, and individuals, Kauai Habitat has the resources to assist affected residents with their repair or rebuilding needs during the long road of disaster recovery.
