Hawaii County anticipated 159 units would be completed in 2023, these 12 units are among the count. The County expects 217 more units will be ready for occupancy in 2024.

“What we see here today wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of nonprofits like HOPE Services Hawaiʻi engaging so many partners and funders in our community to provide these beautiful homes that our kūpuna deserve,” said County of Hawaiʻi Housing Administrator Susan Kunz. “It is partnerships like this that will help move our Hawaiʻi Island community toward ending homelessness because, ultimately, the only way to end homelessness is to house folks.”
