It was a turning point in my life

Honolulu Habitat for Humanity Partners in AUW's ALICE Initiative

2021 ALICE Conversation Series

Please join us for a virtual series of events

This June will be the month that Moses and his two daughters will move into their brand new home thanks to Honolulu Habitat for Humanity’s financial literacy classes.  It’s been a long road for Moses, a Waimānalo native and single father of three.  

When he first applied for Habitat’s Home Ownership program, poor credit and an unstable financial situation prevented him from being accepted. Determined, Moses worked to improve his financial health, attended Habitat’s financial literacy classes and rebuilt his credit. In 2018, he finally heard the words he had been waiting so long to hear: Welcome to the Habitat Family. “It was turning point in my life,” Moses recalls. In the last 2 years, Moses has contributed more than 300 Sweat Equity hours building the homes of his Habitat neighbors. Finally, it is his turn. 

Honolulu Habitat for Humanity is one of many partner agencies that participate in Aloha United Way’s ALICE Initiative. These agencies support upward financial mobility for lower-income families and individuals in Hawai‘i.
