Our philosophy of Kahua Waiwai supports affordable housing, culturally-relevant financial education, and asset building programs to achieve our mission.
Kahua Waiwai espouses the basic philosophy of “A Sense of Place.” The home is viewed as a foundation (kahua). Upon this foundation is built the family’s spiritual values and teachings (waiwai). It is the spiritual value of the home and its surroundings that provides stability and the opportunity for families to build a secure future. Opportunities that help stabilize family life help to create a more stable community. A strong foundation, if built properly, will serve generations to come.
