LAHAINA - Habitat for Humanity Maui on Aug. 12 held a ground breaking and lot selection ceremony for the ten homes it will be building in the Kahoma Residential Subdivision in Lahaina.

Habitat Maui received 142 applications for the ten single-family homes it is building as part of this subdivision.

Applicants were screened to ensure they met Habitat's criteria to be a "partner homeowner," and those who passed were entered into a lottery overseen by Carol Reimann, Maui County's director of Housing & Human Concerns.

The Kahoma Residential Subdivision is located just south of the Kahoma Stream Flood Control Channel and Lahaina Business Park.

Reimann was present for the groundbreaking and lot selection ceremony. "Kudos to Habitat for making homeownership a reality for working families in Maui! It was chicken-skin as families made their lot selections," she said.

Habitat Maui is raising funds to help build these ten homes in Lahaina, as well as a new home build in the Waiohuli Hawaiian Homelands Upcountry and two renovations in Wailuku.

Habitat is holding a 20th Anniversary Celebration fundraiser at the Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort on Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017. The event will include dinner, a casino room, a live rock and roll band, dancing, and live and silent auctions. Tickets are $195/person and come with $100 in "funny money" chips for the casino room.
