Along with the office and computer skills, this department offers the experience to deal with high level business executives in a professional setting. We’ll look for you at our next Luau!

Habilitat’s acquisitions department functions within the enterprise entity. Through acquisitions, we are able to help the organization save on the overall operation costs of the facility. This is as important as fundraising because it allows us to allocate more funds toward growth and education. Through acquisitions, we have been able to incorporate a new computer network for the facility, as well as save on janitorial supplies, shipping rates, administration supplies, facility furniture, audio-visual equipment, exercise equipment, kitchen appliances, and educational, as well as recreational, excursions for the residents. Acquisitions works to enable Habilitat to successfully handle its multiple projects while teaching our residents the valuable lessons of budgeting for, and coordinating, large events and projects. Training is provided that helps residents to make the transition from Habilitat into the business world successfully. This department is also responsible for the acquiring the hundreds of items featured in the live and silent auction at our Annual Luau.

The team as whole has done many projects throughout the years such as Christmas trees, family expos, telethons, broadcast live from local stations, car washes, rodeos, luaus, etc. The fundraising department also handles the advertising for our Annual Luau, Auction and Benefit Concert.

Fundraising
