The KHAKO is a housing-focused program and service delivery strategies are based on nationally and locally recognized continuum-of-care models demonstrated to be effective in addressing the complex issues associated with homelessness in a comprehensive, holistic manner. This approach goes beyond the provision of basic shelter and sustenance needs for homeless persons, by providing a series of structured programs and services that are focused on instilling the skills, knowledge and experience that are necessary to support self-sufficiency and promote positive, healthy life choices.
These services include the following:
We provide emergency shelter for verified homeless individuals and families seeking shelter in Maui County. For single men and women, we provide shelter beds in a dormitory-style setting. For families, we provide either a studio or a two-bedroom unit. To speak with an Intake Coordinator, please call our intake line at (808) 242-HOME ( 808-242-4663 ).
