Goodwill Hawaiʻi to provide employment services for displaced Maui workers

Goodwill Hawaiʻi was recently awarded a new one-year contract by the State of Hawaiʻi DLIR Office of Community Services to provide Employment Core Services to Lahaina’s immigrant population or any other Maui resident who was displaced from work as a direct or indirect result of the Maui fires in August.

The funding will expand on the nonprofit organization’s current Maui relief efforts that focused on providing disaster relief support and store vouchers in the first phase of outreach.

“Goodwill Hawaiʻi has been a trusted and reliable partner in providing employment and training services in other communities statewide, especially those with a large immigrant population or other employment barriers, and we are confident in their ability to replicate their success for the people of Lahaina and across Maui” said Jovanie Dela Cruz, Executive Director of OCS.
