It's Official !
Officially, Neighborhood Housing Community Development Corporation received its Articles of Incorporation as a Non-profit Corporation in the State of Hawai’i on November 14, 2018. We filed for our Federal 501(c)(3) Non-profit status and received approval from the IRS effective November 14, 2018. Our dba PAL Kauai was registered in August of 2019, to reflect the nature and spirit of our principles of development and connection to resilient and proven innovative techniques to lower the cost of living because ....It's affordable housing and so much more.
However, that's not really the beginning of our story. Jim Edmonds and Greg Crowe have been affordable housing advocates for decades. Jim's awareness of the need for truly affordable started as a Real Estate Broker, where he focused his business model to helping local people. Greg's interest in affordable housing was sparked as a young man helping his father develop subdivisions. Through this experience Greg developed a deep knowledge of sustainable building practices with the goal of developing high quality, sustainable housing, at an affordable price. Both Jim and Greg have been helping others and advocating for Permanently Affordable Living (PAL) in their own way, long before they met.
A Magic Moment
Being determined to do something about this "Gradual Tragedy", they both attended County of Kauai Council and Housing meetings on a regular basis. Jim and Greg had met at many different meetings and their common interest and passion sparked a relationship that would eventually lead to PAL Kauai. PAL Kauai's Principles contained in our mission, vision and initiatives are conceived from the discussions between Jim and Greg and sincere efforts to solve the affordable housing crisis on Kauai.

Together we can make a difference!
At PAL Kauai, we are raising funds and promoting Permanently Affordable Living to stop "The Soul" of our little Island - our multi-generational families - from being driven from their ancestral homelands!
Kauai is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Anywhere you live, if you can’t find a HOME you move down the road. On Kauai, if your family has been here for generations and you can’t afford a home, you are gone from your ancestral homeland and your multi-generational family is torn apart!
We believe in taking action with urgency in order to address the housing emergency facing Kauai. Please join us by supporting our efforts to make a measurable difference supporting housing that makes sense for our neighbors, our family, our friends and our businesses on our precious little "Garden Island".
