Foundation Support to Maui Residents Displaced by Fires

With as many as 4,500 Maui residents displaced as the island recovers from the destructive August wildfires, the DRI Foundation is assisting organizations that provide much-needed shelter, including Ka Hale A Ke Ola.

For more than 30 years, Ka Hale A Ke Ola has been breaking the cycle of homelessness on Maui as a housing focused, comprehensive resource center. It provides emergency shelter, life skills training, case management, a primary care medical clinic, and facilities for childcare.

It had a 48-unit homeless shelter and 30 rental units in Lahaina that were all destroyed in the fire, displacing 140 people (50 households). The organization is now working actively in rapid-response mode to find housing for its displaced families, and all donations are currently supporting post-wildfire assistance efforts.

The DRI Foundation is proud to provide support and vital financial assistance to such non-profit organizations, to aid their missions in communities where they are needed.
