Kaloko Ground Breaking to be Celebrated Next Week

From the Mayors Office:

County of Hawai‘i Office of Housing and Community Development and its partners will celebrate the groundbreaking of the Kaloko Housing Project at the project site on Hina Lani Street at 3 p.m. on Monday, June 28.

The Kaloko Housing Project will be a 96-unit complex, and will replace the Ka Hale O Kawaihae Transitional Housing Program.  The initial phases of the Kaloko complex will include 12 transitional housing apartments and 28 apartments for low‑income residents.

The Kaloko Housing Project will serve low-income families with children.  The transitional units will serve only homeless families, while the rentals will serve low-income families with a preference for families that are homeless or at risk for homelessness.

This is the second project to break ground in Kona in the past year that will assist in housing the homeless. The Office of Housing and Community Development broke ground in June 2009 for its first emergency shelter for the homeless in West Hawai‘i. The 31-bed emergency shelter in the Kailua-Kona old industrial area is scheduled for completion in October 2010.
