When catastrophic wildfires forced Maui residents from their longtime homes and into an unknown future in early August, Maui United Way’s small yet mighty local staff immediately transitioned to around-the-clock disaster response, leveraging our 75 years of community service on Maui. We are working to meet the needs via fast-tracked grant approvals to existing grassroots organizations that are local and focused on basic needs.  All of our work is guided by a deep desire to increase equity and decrease long-standing disparities for communities, including the AAPI populations, especially Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander populations.  And 100% of the donations to Maui United Way stay in Hawaii.

Some results so far are highlighted below (with additional information on Maui Fire Disaster Relief here):


Emergency Financial Assistance for Adults in the Impacted Fire Zones:

Maui United Way distributed $8M in emergency financial assistance to adult fire survivors who were in the fire impact areas in Lahaina and Kula. Giving families the ability to choose what they purchase is empowering – they know what they need.

Maui United Way has approved grants to nonprofit partners offering direct relief to impacted families including:

- Locally grown food provided by Maui’s farmers
- Transportation for those who have had their vehicles destroyed
- Mortgage and insurance assistance
- Help replacing identification lost in the fires
- Crisis counseling
- Childcare services and health care, including from Native Hawaiian practitioners

As the community moves beyond initial emergency response, MUW will engage with the community to ensure our work takes a survivor-centered approach that creates a stronger, more resilient Maui and we've  prioritized four key areas: 1) keiki and young adults; 2) mental health; 3) stable housing; and 4) job training, education, and employment services.
