Blitz Build 2017

About This Campaign

Over ten days in September, the 13th to the 23rd, Habitat West Hawaii will be building ten homes for ten deserving West Hawaii families. On the same site as our first Blitz Build in 2012, the Kailua-Kona neighborhood of La’i ‘Opua will see ten new houses added to its community.
We’ve partnered with the Department of Hawaiian Homelands to make this happen, but we’re also going to need the support of everyone in our community. That means we need local businesses, corporations, and individuals to band together so that we can give ten more families a safe, decent, and affordable place to live.

Campaign to Support Habitat for Humanity Hawai'i Island

Habitat for Humanity West Hawaii is a non-profit, faith-based organization seeking to break the cycle of poverty by providing affordable home ownership opportunities to low-income families on Hawaii Island.


Established in 2002, our mission is to empower and strengthen families by providing them with a solid foundation from which to build a better life.  We are working towards the goal of ensuring that all families have a safe and affordable place to call home.
Our vision is that all residents of Hawaii Island will achieve that through our affordable homebuilding and home repair efforts, which are performed on a no-interest, no-profit basis.
