Kimokeo Kapahulehua conducts a socially-distanced Hawaiian blessing during the groundbreaking for Ka Lima O Maui’s new 10,000-square-foot, $3.5 million facility in Wailuku on Thursday morning. Construction is scheduled to start this month and take 14 months to complete. The building will be located on a 2-acre parcel near Ka Lima O Maui’s current home in the Cameron Center. Ka Lima, which provides job training and placement for adults with disabilities, has so far raised $3.3 million for the project.

Ka Lima O Maui Executive Director Chantal Ratte describes how the new facility will allow the organization to expand its vocational services for people with disabilities. She said all people deserve to live with “opportunity and dignity,” and by “putting paychecks in deserving hands” Ka Lima helps that happen.
