What is `Ele`ele Iluna?
A new subdivision of affordable homes built by Kaua`i Habitat for Humanity and our Homeowner Families.
Kaua`i Habitat’s founder, the late LaFrance Kapaka-Arboleda, said that in Hawaiian, the meaning of `Ele`ele Iluna is “to rise up from the darkness.” With this in mind, our affiliate vows to equip Kauai’s hard-working families with the tools necessary to bring themselves out of the darkness and break the cycle of poverty, thus becoming agents of their own change, through our self-build program and team build philosophy.
Where is it?
Located between Kaumuali`i Highway and Halewili Road in `Ele`ele on the Island of Kaua`i.
How many houses will be built there?
There will be 107 more affordable homes built there by 2021 for a total of 125 homes.
