Maui Cameron Center
Fully Financed


Maui Cameron Center

Complete financing was announced for the $2.1 million J. Walter Cameron Center during groundbreaking ceremonies last week.

In a surprise announcement, Alvin Amaral, speaking for U.S. Senator Hiram Fong, read a telegram which told of an additional $230,000 approved for the center from the Dept. of Housing and Urban Development.

The center is designed to centralize health care facilities and to house programs for the physically, mentally, socially and educationally handicapped.

It will be situated on a five-acre site below Maui Memorial Hospital.

Funding for the project includes $700,000 from the state legislature, $462,000 from the U.S. Dept. of Health, Education and Welfare, $394,000 from the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development, $300,000 from community fund drives on Maui and Oahu, and $249,000 from Maui County for purchasing of property.

The center will house such groups as the Maui Easter Seal Society and its physical and speech therapy programs, the Ka Lima o Maui workshop for the handicapped, and the Hale Ike and Hale Hauoli programs for the mentally retarded.

J. Walter Cameron, publisher of the Maui News and former president of Alexander & Baldwin, Inc., initiated the project.
