HONOLULU, Hawaii - It had been called a pipe dream.
Hawaii’s largest homeless camp announced they have the money to buy 20 acres of land on Oahu’s Leeward Coast.
Pu’uhonua o Waianae is expected to close on the property next Friday. A hefty donation means they’ll be able to own the land outright.
Among the 200 or so people planning to move to the property: Connie Hokoana, who has called a makeshift shelter tucked behind Waianae Boat Harbor home for more than a decade.
The group will be moving into a communal village, made up of tiny homes, that’s being built on a plot off Waianae Valley Road.
