Maui Economic Opportunity has started the MEO-Maui Fires Fund to help place those who lost their homes in Maui fires into safe and secure housing as soon as possible. Donations will be used to pay for rents. MEO and others have put out a call for available units in the community and have been assembling lists. MEO is currently designing a housing program and should have it up and running soon with the scope based on donations received.
In an effort to get assistance out quicker, MEO is now accepting direct donations to be used for rental placements and other essential needs for those impacted by the fires. We have been in contact with landlords and Realtors about open units and are compiling a list.
Checks may be made out to:
