Easter Seals Hawaii will soon be able to complete its Maui Campus for disability services in Kahului. Governor Neil Abercrombie announced the release of $950,000 in capital improvement grant funds to the nonprofit organization to finish building its Maui Campus.
The project includes additional space and facilities that will enable Easter Seals Hawaii to expand the adult and youth activities to help support the 2,500 adult population and more than 1,900 special education students enrolled in the Department of Education schools on Maui. As part of the project, Easter Seals Hawaii is partnering with Imua Family Services to offer services from a renovated 10,200 square foot, two-story building adjacent to the Easter Seals Hawaii Service Center.
“This worthy project will provide a safe and secure environment for children and adults of all ages with an array of quality programs offered by Easter Seals Hawaii in partnership with Imua Family Services,” Abercrombie said. “The campus will also function as a resource for disability-related services and support groups throughout the Valley Isle.”
Phase I of the Maui Campus development was completed in August 2012. Phase II will consolidate the nonprofit’s Medicaid Waiver Adult Day Health and Community Support Services programs with Imua children’s programs.
