Kalaeloa Kauhale

Kalaeloa Kauhale

“Kauhale” is a traditional, cultural model of housing consisting of tiny homes and communal areas for restrooms, cooking, and gathering.

Kalaeloa Kauhale is located directly adjacent to our current U.S.VETS facility. Planned, designed, and built from a community-centered concept, this new site offers a fresh new approach to housing our homeless neighbors with aloha and inclusion. These planned communities consist of permanent, supportive housing units that require a small amount of rent based on personal income.

Under the management of U.S.VETS, residents will receive ongoing supportive services such as case management, housing and employment assistance, on-site medical care, recreational activities, therapy, and more. Kalaeloa Kauhale is an important resource to help veterans transition from persistent homelessness into a transformative and supportive community that fosters a sense of ohana and ownership among residents.
