About this organization






The aio Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that supports academic, athletic and artistic programs that enable Hawai‘i’s youth to develop the skills and knowledge to become self-sustaining, community-minded contributors who work toward making the Islands a better place. Support is available for organizations offering opportunities in workforce/career development, life skills, communication, personal or cultural development for Hawai‘i’s youth. The aio Foundation provides ongoing support to the Reach the Runway program, the Hawai‘i’s Next 50 contest, the VEX IQ Hawaii robotics program and mentorship to Center for Tomorrow’s Leaders. The Kahauiki Village community for housing-challenged families is the aio Foundation’s marquee project.


In response to the state's growing homeless crisis, Kahauiki Village is a plantation style community development designed to house Hawaii's homeless families. Kahauiki Village is a groundbreaking initiative that maximizes public and private resources to implement a long-term strategy aimed to achieve the following outcomes: Provide homes for homeless families; Provide employment opportunities within walking distance for homeless parents; Offer accomodation options for extended families. Kahauiki Village is a proposed community of approximately 150 one and two bedroom homes. When completed, Kahauiki Village is expected to house over 600 adults and children. At the end of 2018, 30 units were constructed and completed.
