Gov. Neil Abercrombie has granted $750,000 to Palolo Chinese Home to benefit seniors and adults.
The grant is for renovating the house project and residential home care. The project will be used for improvements to expand capacity to provide more services to kupuna as one of the top administration priorities.
The money will help renovate internal and external housing that will increase property value. The large-scale renovations may set up non-smoking areas, disability access, bus stop availability, recreation parks, and more services for elders’ care and various projects, the governor said in a press release.
Palolo Chinese Home is a private and nonprofit organization established in 1896 for adult residential care.
