Habitat for Humanity on Maui

South Maui Condo Sales in Kihei

By Mark Harbison

There are many people who cannot afford a home, despite their best efforts, and there are those who are struggling even to pay rent. Homelessness can be the result of a sequence of unfortunate events that couldn't be foreseen, despite a popular notion that the unfortunate just aren't trying hard enough. Once things become so difficult, it can be incredibly hard for people to dig themselves out of their situation.

For those who are fortunate enough to be shopping around our website and browsing listings, deciding which Maui home, condo or vacant land to buy, perhaps you would like to give something back to the community? If so, the work of Habitat for Humanity might be a great fit!

The goal of this non-profit organization is to work on eliminating poverty and homelessness through the wonderful efforts of volunteers. These volunteers cooperate to build homes, providing a healthy family base for kids and parents, so they have a nice place to come back to after their efforts in school and work.

This work done by Habitat for Humanity helps to build, revitalize and invigorate communities all over the world. Even Maui needs a little help. Volunteers can sign up to build a new home or renovate an existing home through the Home Building program. Volunteers can also help at the ReStore by unloading new or nearly new building materials, and also by pricing, sorting, setting up displays and helping customers find what they need.

To learn more about how you can help out, visit habitat-maui.org.
