The 2018 Kilauea eruption damaged more that 700 home is the Lower Puna District. Hundreds of individuals and families lost their homes. We came up with a concept to build temporary shelters for these displaced families. In partnership with many other individuals, businesses, contractors and community groups, we constructed 20 small modular homes at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church property in Pahoa. Leonard & Suellen also donated a high tech Smartflower Solar PV unit to help offset their electrical consumption.
Security for this homeless shelter was of major concern, so we donated labor and equipment to install security lighting around the premises for a safer environment.
