BHHS for IHS
In 2021, BHHS Hawai'i Realty set out to partner with a community organization with whom we could build a lasting partnership, make a real impact financially and practically and who's mission and values aligned with our own fabric. We found that partner in Hawai'is oldest and most recognized homeless advocate The Institute for Human Services.
The BHHS Hawai'i Realty for IHS Housing Fund
As part of our long-term commitment to the Institute of Human Services and our shared values in helping people find a place to call home, we are committed to raising $25,000 for the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Hawai’i Realty for IHS Housing Fund. We seeded our fund with an initial donation of $10,000 for families in need and we greatly appreciate your support in our fundraising eﬀorts. This fund is designed to help families in need of emergency funds to keep people in their homes and prevent them from falling into homelessness. The funding will include preventative measures such as rental deposits, rent relief, and utility deposits. The goal of this fund is to support qualified families, that don’t fit the criteria for state and federal assistance programs, so they can receive the help they need.
The Moving-It-Forward Program
We know it’s not just four walls and a roof that makes a home. Our Moving-it-Forward Program gives Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Hawai’i Realty home sellers the opportunity to donate household essentials and furnishings to IHS families as part of the closing process. Your BHHS agent will make sure that the items that don’t need to get to your next home go to a great home in need. You just say the word and we’ll handle the rest.
