Live Conversation with Kim McLaughlin & Ashley Hyman

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of you who joined us for our recent live session with co-founders Ashley and Kim McLaughlin. Your presence made the event truly special, and we appreciate the engagement and support you continue to offer us.


During the session, Ashley and Kim discussed a range of important topics, but one conversation in particular stood out. They delved into the heart-wrenching despair experienced by some of our community members, coupled with the ongoing challenge of housing scarcity for those in need. We believe this discussion encapsulated the essence of our mission and the urgency of our work.


In case you missed it, here’s a clip from that conversation:



In this excerpt, Ashley and Kim shared their observations and insights on the current housing situation in Maui. They discussed the difficult realities faced by individuals and families who find themselves without a place to call home. It’s a problem that often remains hidden from the tourist-centric view of the island, but it’s a harsh truth that we cannot ignore.


You are not seeing it in the news, but we are in the trenches over here.  I hear the voice of the people.  The dispair is so great right now.  We have over 7500 people living in hotels with very little to no hope of finding a place to live.  That is the reality. 36:00 min mark. (edited) 

The despair felt by those affected by homelessness is a stark reminder of why our mission at Boots on the Ground Maui is so crucial. We are committed to working tirelessly to make a difference in the lives of these individuals and to address the housing crisis head-on.


Your support is what enables us to take action and drive change. It’s through your generosity, your engagement, and your dedication to our cause that we can continue our efforts to provide relief and support to those who need it most.


Once again, we want to express our deepest gratitude for your attendance at the live session and for your ongoing support of Boots on the Ground Maui. Together, we can make strides towards a more compassionate and thriving community for all.


We encourage you to share the video clip above with your friends and family to help raise awareness about the housing challenges faced by some of our neighbors. Let’s work together to build a better future for Maui.


Thank you for being a part of our journey, and stay tuned for more updates and opportunities to get involved.

Our sincere thanks go out to everyone who has supported us in our journey so far. Your belief in our cause fuels our determination to make a difference. Together, we can ensure that every resident of Maui has a place they can call home.
