$1.2 million in recent Hawai’i grants announced

The Weinberg Foundation recently approved $1.2 million in Hawai’i-based grants, including housing support for families of survivors of domestic violence and for people experiencing homelessness; increased access to community services for older adults and people with disabilities; and financial counseling and services.

Housing

Stable housing provides a foundation for individuals, children, and families to lead healthy and productive lives. Without housing, people are unable to focus on education, employment, health care, and meeting other basic needs

Domestic Violence Action Center
Honolulu, HI
$240,000 capital grant to support this organization’s expansion, including the completion of Hale Wahine—permanent supportive housing for families of survivors of domestic violence.

HOPE Services Hawai’i
Hawai’i Island, HI
$400,000 operating grant to support the general operations of this organization, which works to leverage Medicaid funding for community-based health services with the goal of strengthening connections to housing for people experiencing homelessness.

Health

Good health is essential to help people move and remain out of poverty. Poor physical or mental health can prevent or complicate the pursuit of education, employment, and other opportunities for economic mobility.  

Waikiki Community Center
Honolulu, HI
$100,000 capital grant to support renovations at this organization’s primary facility by leveraging state funding with the goal of increasing building and program access for older adults and people with disabilities.

Community Services

The Foundation recognizes that certain service providers operate multiple programs that meet a range of needs and therefore incorporate many of the Foundation’s focus areas. Organizations that provide services bridging the areas of Housing, Health, Jobs, and Education may be eligible for a Community Services grant. The Foundation is also engaged in a range of proactive strategic initiatives focused on addressing Jewish poverty on a national scale, as well as strengthening the Jewish nonprofit sector at-large.

Hawai’i Community Lending
Throughout Hawai’i
$500,000 operating grant to support the general operations of this organization, which provides financial counseling and low-interest loans with the goal of helping families build credit, afford housing opportunities, and achieve economic stability.
