Public Information Meetings Set by Honolulu Habitat for Humanity

Honolulu Habitat for Humanity invites everyone to upcoming informational meetings, especially families who are interested in applying for a simple, decent Habitat home.

Informational sessions will be held at Papakolea Community Center on Saturday, May 9, 2009 at 10:30am and again on Monday, May 11, 2009 at 6:30pm. Information sessions are also being held at Windward Community College on Saturday May 2, 2009 at 10:30am at Hale Kuhina Room 115 and again on Monday, May 4, 2009 at 6:30pm at Hale Alakai Room 102. Anyone who intends to apply for Honolulu Habitat's program is required to attend one session.

Families who own or lease property and need a new or renovated home are encouraged to come to this meeting. Honolulu Habitat builds homes in partnership with low income families. The families will participate in building the home and then purchasing the home from Habitat for the cost of construction through a 20-year, no interest loan serviced by Honolulu Habitat.

Founded in 1988 to serve Oahu, Honolulu Habitat for Humanity is a local affiliate of an international organization that builds homes with volunteer labor. The program is a "hand up not a hand out" and helps families build a simple, decent and safe home.
