Programs: We build safe, decent and affordable, energy efficient homes in the urban core of Kansas City, MO. Qualified low income families contribute between 250 hours (for a rehab) and 350 hours (for new construction) of sweat equity which includes education classes, working at the ReStore, volunteering for community organizations and public relations.Volunteers contribute on average 2,500 hours to the construction of each home. This service is valued at nearly $45,000. The program includes acquisition of land, house design, volunteer management, scheduling of subcontractors and landscaping.

Mission:
Habitat for Humanity Kansas City is the 7th oldest affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International and was founded by John and Mary Pritchard in 1979. Since our inception thirty years ago, Habitat Kansas City has constructed or rehabilitated more than 225 single-family homes in the urban core of Kansas City. For many years, Habitat for Humanity Kansas City’s focus was building houses; however, over the years it has become more and more evident that our focus was limited. While the house is the tangible means to overcoming poverty housing and substandard living conditions, it is not the driving force. To truly have a lasting impact on this issue it takes more than a house. It takes people. Families who have a need and a desire to own their own home, volunteers who are willing and able to help frame the future for these families, and communities willing to contribute resources toward solutions that address the matter as a whole. It is this concept that truly describes the Habitat for Humanity Kansas City of today, and is why in the last few years we have shifted our focus from building houses, to building families.

The most amazing part is knowing that my hands and labor have helped someone's family ... more »
