Catholic Charities Housing Development Corporation (CCHDC) July 19 dedicated the second and final phase of its Kahului Lani senior affordable rental housing development in Kahului, Maui. The blessing, conducted by Bishop Larry Silva, was attended by Hawaii Gov. David Ige, Maui Mayor Michael Victorino, and Maui lawmakers.
Kahului Lani provides low-income seniors with an affordable permanent living option and complimentary amenities. The project at 65 School Street has 165 rental units and a 7,500-square-foot multipurpose facility with social services provided by Catholic Charities Hawaii.
Kahului Lani is for seniors earning 60 percent or less of the Maui County median income.
“We want to thank everyone who was able to make this important project possible for our seniors,” said Catholic Charities CEO and president Robert Van Tassell. “Affordable housing has always been a top priority and it’s necessary to keep our kupuna safe and sheltered, particularly during this recent pandemic.”
Incorporated in 1999 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization operating as a subsidiary of Catholic Charities Hawaii, CCHDC owns, develops and manages real estate properties to provide affordable housing for the elderly, special needs individuals and other socially or economically disadvantaged persons and families.
