About the Corporation
Hale Mahaolu is a private non-profit Housing Corporation established in 1967. Our mission is to provide quality housing and support services for individuals and families. Since 1989, Hale Mahaolu has been a HUD-Approved Housing Counseling Agency servicing the entire state of Hawaii. Most of the services provided through the Homeownership/Housing Counseling Program are at no cost to the participants. Funding for the program is made possible at times by grants from various sources that include:
- U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development

A key component in effectively resolving many homeownership issues is active client participation. As a good faith effort in exchange for receiving services at no cost, clients must take an active role in resolving their homeownership issues; this in turn will lead them to successfully achieving many of their goals.
