In the wake of the Governor Ige’s recent emergency proclamation to tackle homelessness due to Hawaii having the highest rate of homelessness per capita in the United States, we feel it’s vitally urgent to immediately begin reintroducing vacant, foreclosed and distressed properties back into circulation by implementing the “Rebuild Communities Initiative”.
When foreclosed homes are left unattended it affects everyone in our community. They lower property values, invite crime and create health hazards. Vacant homes take an economic, physical and social toll on a community by attracting trespassers and squatters, as well as becoming a haven for illegal and dangerous activities.
We want families in these homes and to prevent the loss to those in jeopardy of losing their homes and further contributing to the epidemic homeless crisis. The Rebuild Communities Initiative will stabilize and revitalize our distressed communities, going above and beyond just addressing housing needs. We will be deploying collaborative efforts to promote community strengths, acquire, revitalize, rebuild, and reoccupy these abandoned foreclosed properties attracting residents as a catalyst for long-term social, economic and community recovery.
The “Rebuild Communities Initiative” provides for the acquisition of distressed and foreclosed properties, education, training, technical assistance, tools and resources to allow public, private and nonprofit partners to stabilize communities and implement comprehensive long-term revitalization strategies and help families have a home. Our first objective we will be in the state of Hawaii due to the emergency proclamation to tackle homelessness and Hawaii having the highest per capita rate of homelessness in the Nation.
Working with our partners, banks and mortgage holders, to reclaim and revitalize these properties and communities by creating opportunities for families to retain or reoccupy these homes, we will improve lives and strengthen communities.
An approach that emphasizes stable, permanent housing as a primary strategy for ending homelessness.
We are currently seeking funding for Hawaii. We will not waste funds on bureaucratic reports and studies of studies.
The answer is simple…
1. Aquire vacant property
2. Revitalize to make safe and livable
3. Place family in Home
4. Repeat process, until no longer required.
