DIY and building projects

Help around the house
1) Learn about living in the tropical climate of Hawaii through landscaping, gardening, home renovation and fruit tree planting
2) Working supporting two young adults with autism to live independently. Sharing life this way can be a challenge; a challenge which has the potential to help you grow in ways you never imagined.
Renovate a newly purchased home where once renovated will be a lifesharing home that supports two male adults with autism in rural Haiku, Maui. August until November will be renovations, landscaping, etc. The place is really run down! Staring end of 2020 work supporting adults with autism with cooking, cleaning, companionship, yard work and property renovations. Experience helping or living with autistic individuals preferred. Most help will either be first thing in the morning getting everyone ready for the day and in the evening with dinner and getting ready for bed. A volunteer more interested in gardening, landscaping and home projects can also do more work on the property and spend less time with the adults with autism. Adults with autism are gone from the residence during the daytime hours 9-5.
