Habitat for Humanity Maui is offering help to Hurricane and flood victims to repair or–if deemed necessary–rebuild homes that were damaged in the recent West Maui fires and floods associated with the passing of Hurricane Lane.

The service is available through Habitat’s “A Brush With Kindness” program, which provides assistance with repairing homes in substandard condition.

This can include repairs needed due to damage from high winds (such as roof repair), leaky or broken windows, flood damage, or a full tear-down and rebuild (if deemed necessary) of a home compromised by fire or flooding.

Habitat Maui is able to assist residents earning below 80% of the median income in Maui County.

Habitat Maui is also requesting donations of leftover plywood that may not be needed after the hurricane threat has passed. Any donations are tax deductible and these materials will be made available at the ReStore to those affected by the storm.


More information about Habitat for Humanity Maui programs or events is available by calling their office at (808) 242-1140, or visiting their website.
