Background Statement

Truman Heritage Habitat for Humanity Overview

Truman Heritage Habitat for Humanity (THHFH) was founded in 1989, as a non-profit ecumenical Christian housing ministry, seeking to eliminate poverty housing and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. Truman Heritage Habitat for Humanity is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a non-profit organization that provides decent, affordable housing opportunities to low-income people in 90 countries around the world. We work closely with the city governments in the communities we serve, helping with neighborhood revitalization, economic growth and development within those communities, while providing affordable housing to low-and- moderate income families whose incomes fall within 25 to 60 percent of the Area Median Income.

Our affiliate serves all eastern Jackson County, Missouri, which includes the following cities, Blue Springs, Buckner, Grain Valley, Grandview, Greenwood, Independence, Lee’s Summit, Oak Grove, Raytown, and Sugar Creek. THH partner families are required to attend homeownership classes, financial & budgeting classes and classes that educate them on how to establish and maintain a good In 2016, THH has helped 275 individuals with affordable housing and financial literacy counseling in Eastern Jackson County.  In November 2013, THH shifted its model by incorporating Habitat’s Neighborhood Revitalization model, which is designed to help affiliates transform blighted neighborhoods and allow us to serve more families. Some of the services THH can offer in the way of transforming blighted neighborhoods are: new, energy-efficient house construction; rehabilitation of vacant and foreclosed properties; critical home repairs for existing low-income homeowners; weatherization to make existing houses more energy efficient and affordable. Our strategic five year plan includes assisting over 500 families (2000 people) with safe, decent, affordable housing.

The overwhelming success of the first ReStore in Independence provided the model and opportunity to open ReStore #2 in Blue Springs, Missouri.  The revenue streams from both ReStores will assist in continuing Habitat's mission in our community.

Impact Statement

2016 Accomplishments:

 
  1. In December 2016, we were awarded a Mabee Foundation Challenge towards the renovation of the historic Hiram Young School Community Building. By the end of 2016, THHFH has raised nearly 76% of the 6.1 million dollar goal.  
  2. Served 275 individuals throughout Eastern Jackson County with safe, decent and affordable housing needs and financial literacy towards home ownership.  
  3. Partnered with MGE & Independence Power and Light on a pilot program to address weatherization needs for low income families.  These services will make an enormous impact on the health and financial status of these families as they see their utility bills decrease and their health improve.
  4. The THHFH ReStores processed nearly 54,000 sales transactions in 2016 (a 35% increase over 2015) to generate revenue to support the annual fund. Over 1,500 donation pick-ups (37.5% increase); diverted 572 tons of solid waste from the landfills.  
 
2017 Goals:

  1. To receive funding to expand the financial literacy program to a new HOPE Program “Home Owner Preparation and Education” to include home ownership education and becoming HUD Certified, increase marketing to reach more families across EJC  and to add three additional computers to be used by clients to track efforts to outcomes to achieve the desired goal of permanent home ownership.  Goal $101,000
  2. THHFH kicked off the public phase of the Capital Campaign to further Habitat’s mission.  We plan to complete the capital campaign in 2017 and meet the Mabee Challenge.  Goal to raise $715,000 by 12/31/17
  3. THHFH will run the Pilot Program for the second year with MGE/Laclede Gas and Independence Power and Light to address weatherization needs for low income families in the Independence, Missouri.  It is our goal to show another successful year so that we can triple the Weatherization program in 2018.
Needs Statement

  1. To be able to meet the Mabee Challenge, THHFH is looking to raise $715,000 by December 31, 2017 for the renovation of the historic Hiram Young School Community Building.  This will greatly provided additional space to hold Life Skills Classes and other additional space to increase capacity to serve more than 500 families over the next five years.
  2. Financial resources of $25,000 to purchase a forklift for the Blue Springs ReStore.
  3. Program funding to support the expansion of the Financial Literacy program to the new HOPE Program “Home Owner Preparation and Education” $101,000.  This will allow us to graduate more families and move them to permanent home ownership through traditional means.
  4. Program funding of $200,000 to the opportunity fund that will allow THHFH to renovate four donated vacant homes to place families.  More families can be served through home rehabs at a 50-75% reduction as compared to the cost of a new construction home.  In addition, this impacts a larger community when homes are renovated to improve the neighborhood and helps to eliminate crime in vacant properties. 
  5. Funding for construction vehicles and tools to expand services to other cities within Eastern Jackson County- $50,000.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

Statement from the CEO:

Over the course of the past four years, THHFH has grown exponentially by implementing the Neighborhood Revitalization (NR) model to serve more families all across eastern Jackson County. The successful model has increased the number of families served from 3-5 per year to over 69 families in 2015.

 

The NR model incorporates four main components to address safe, decent and affordable housing challenges. THHFH has successfully incorporated all four components by: 1) building new construction homes on infill lots; 2) rehabbing of vacant or abandoned homes in neighborhoods to revitalize the community; and 3) minor and critical home repairs to keep families in their current home. 4)  Weatherization to homes of low income families. 

 

Additionally in 2015, THHFH expanded the financial literacy and sustainability education program currently required of THHFH families to other members of the community. This program is offered to low and moderate income families to address the root causes of poverty and to move them towards permanent home ownership and self sustainability.

 

The staff and board of THHFH has a goal of serving over 500 families within the next five years. The challenge facing our organization is capacity to be able to serve all of eastern Jackson County. More staff, equipment, construction vehicles and tools are needed to serve our community.

 

To address this challenge, THHFH kicked off our vision campaign to increase capacity to the organization to serve more families. The campaign will build on 6 key foundations: Renovate the adjacent Hiram Young historic school building. This building will house the affiliate operations, provide a life skills center for the community and restore one of the classrooms to its original state to maintain the historic heritage of the school; increase construction services to include more tools, staff, and equipment; Expand the Independence ReStore to the full capacity of the 12,000 square foot building once administration and construction have vacated; create an opportunity fund to have cash flow readily available to rehab vacant home, increase the annual fund to support capacity growth and financial literacy education and establish an endowment fund for ensured future sustainability.

 

Other methods to address these challenges is through built-in sustainability via the ReStore revenue, collaboration amongst community partners, leveraging Habitat’s gift-in-kind program and finally by promoting the Habitat name brand to support our mission. 
Programs
Description

In 2011, THH acquired the historical Hiram Young School Building and purchased its current ReStore/office building from the Independence School District. Both properties are located on six acres in Independence, Missouri.  Renovating and preserving the building will allow THHFH to move its offices from its ReStore to the Hiram Young School Building, and reconfigure space in the school building to include a Life Skills Center (LSC); Nutritional Center and to preserve one of the Hiram Young School Building’s classrooms to be used to educate the community about the legacy of Hiram Young. Also, the LSC could be rented for community events, providing additional income to build sustainability for THHFH’s programs.

Population Served Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent, ,
Short-Term Success

The renovation of the Hiram Young school building will help to fulfill the mission of Habitat by serving more families by:

  • Increase awareness in the community about THHFH and the mission of Habitat by opening a Hiram Young classroom museum to increase traffic on the THHFH property and to honor and educate the community about Hiram Young and our shared vision of providing a hand up and not a hand out.
  • Revenue stream when community partners rent THH’s new conference space.
  • Increased office space for staff and volunteers to expand capacity to serve more families

Long-Term Success

Restoring the Hiram Young School Building help THHFH serve more families by providing

  • Life Skills Center (LSC) to allow much needed space to provide families with financial, budgeting, home ownership and personal life skills education to ensure the success and sustainability of families in our community. These classes count toward the partner families’ “sweat equity” hours.
  • Nutritional center with commercial kitchen for healthy choices educational classes.
  • Addressing the root causes of poverty housing through education will help us break the cycle of poverty and poverty housing

 

Additionally, moving THHFH’s current offices to the renovated Hiram Young School Building will allow the Independence ReStore to expand from 6,000 to 12,000 square feet. This will…

  • Increase inventory, sales and revenue to support more families by building more new construction homes, renovating donated vacant homes and strengthening the operating budget.
  • Divert more items from landfills: Reuse, Repurpose and ReStore!
  • Provide more room for Gift-In-Kind partners and donations.

Program Success Monitored By

Tools that we use to measure success:

  • Increased number of individuals and families served through the expanded Habitat model
  • Awareness in the community off THHFH by exposure thru the HY classroom museum
  • A Life Skills Center (LSC) to allow much needed space to provide families with financial, budgeting, home ownership and personal life skills education to ensure the success and sustainability of families in our community. These classes count toward the partner families’ “sweat equity” hours.
  • Enrollment in cooking, gardening and healthy life choices through the Nutritional Center 
  • Increased number of families served from 78 to over 100 annually   
  • Increased revenue stream through rental of conference space.
  • Increased number of donor relationships
Examples of Program Success

Life skills classes will be held in the renovated building. It is estimated that at least 180 attendees will attend and benefit for over 50 life skills classes annually. Life skills classes include nutritional, cooking, managing finances, and subjects to make homeownership affordable such as home maintenance and energy efficiency instruction. In addition, our Financial Literacy counseling program will serve over 250 families annually with a focus on home ownership. Actual numbers will be reported on these activities.

THHFH will keep track of the number of people visiting the historic classroom museum which will be available to the public during THHFH office hours. This site will be part of the City’s historic walking tour around the Independence Square and will be available to school and other groups. It is difficult at this time to estimate the number of individual tourists and groups that will be visiting the classroom, but an average of 600 people annually seems a reasonable goal. 

Description

Truman Heritage Habitat for Humanity (THHFH) opened its first ReStore in September 2012 in Independence, Missouri. After 18 months of a successful business model and growth of the ReStore, the Habitat affiliate opened a second ReStore in April 2014 in Blue Springs, Missouri in a 15,000 sq. ft. building.  A typical ReStore is over 15,000 - 20,000 sq. ft.; however the Independence ReStore only inhabits approximately 6,000 sq. ft. of the current 12,000 sq.ft. building that it shares with administrative staff and the construction department.  Moving the administration and construction out of the current space will allow the Independence ReStore to expand, accept more donations and generate additional revenue to support the affiliate. 

The ReStore is a warehouse retail facility that accepts donations of new and used construction materials and home improvement items, where by donors can enjoy the benefit of a tax deduction.  Consumers can shop at the ReStore and can purchase items at deeply discounted prices, with net revenue used to fund the Habitat for Humanity mission. Finally, the ReStore assists with the diversion of solid wastes that would normally be sent to our local landfills.  To date, the two THHFH ReStores have diverted more than 700 tons of solid waste from landfills.

Population Served General/Unspecified, ,
Short-Term Success
The THHFH ReStore has experienced a higher sales volume than initially expected. The increased sales also equates to a greater reduction, in tons, of solid waste diverted from area landfills. We have slowly begun to change the habits of community members from simply placing old housing materials curbside for waste pickup, to donating to our ReStore for repurposing. In addition, our customers frequently return to shop the following day and/or week from their initial visit. Often times they bring friends with them on their next visit. The more successful the ReStore becomes, the greater impact it will have on the community, by means of offering low-cost home improvement items to consumers, reducing solid waste and helping to fund the revitalization of neighborhood communities in Eastern Jackson County.
 
Short term success: increase waste diversion exceeded 560 tons in 2016 and increased families served with housing needs through generated revenue. 
Long-Term Success
ReStores provide an environmentally- and socially-responsible way to keep good, reusable materials out of landfills, while providing low-cost home improvement goods to the general public.
 
Future goals for Habitat ReStores include: additional days of operation; increasing average sales; engaging more volunteers; build community awareness in Eastern Jackson County; expand the number of donation pick-ups; and reduce the amount of solid waste in local landfills.
 
Long term success:  more families served through revenue generated through the ReStore reaching the strategic 5 year goal of serving over 500 families in our community. 
Program Success Monitored By The program success is monitored by sales from the ReStore which are totaled in various categories including household, lumber, paint etc.  The sales totals are then calculated using Habitat Internationals formula to determine the number of tonnage of solid waster diverted from our landfills.  In addition, we measure success by number of donations made by donors, number of customers purchasing from the ReStore and dollars contributed to the operating budget from the ReStore.
Examples of Program Success
THHFH had initially estimated that 110 tons of solid waste would be diverted from local landfills during the first year of operation. However, during the initial few months, the ReStore accumulated in excess of $30,000 in sales, which calculated by the Habitat standard equation formula of total sales divided by 683 to determine diversion (in tons) would equal over 44 tons of waste diverted from area landfills during those months. The ReStore now has the potential to create additional waste diversion of 80 to 100 tons, thereby bringing it to a total of 210 tons approximately per year.  To date, we have exceeded that goal by 100 tons.
The ultimate goal for the ReStores is to bring in enough revenue to cover the affiliate’s operational costs; thereby, allowing 100% of donor dollars to go straight toward the cost of building and revitalizing homes for low-income families.
Description
Truman Heritage Habitat for Humanity is requesting funding to support our financial literacy program, which is called HOPE … Home Ownership Preparation & Education. This program was started in 2015 to address the root causes of poverty housing by educating families about sustainability through free one-on-one coaching on the topics of budgeting, savings, and credit building.
 
The ultimate goal of HOPE is to assist low- and moderate-income families to achieve homeownership either through our program or traditional financing.
 
Our Neighborhood Revitalization Counselor works with families in Eastern Jackson County who are interested in home ownership to provide guidance on budgeting, goal setting, credit building. She assists them with setting financial goals and counsels them on ways to achieve their goals.
 
Since its inception, we have met with 170 families and helped them achieve 242 goals. Goals include budget creation, saving money, establishing checking/savings accounts, consolidating debt, reducing high interest rates on loans, paying down revolving debt, applying for home financing, closing on a home. Fifteen of our clients have applied for home financing; nine have closed on homes through traditional financing.

Short-Term Success
In 2017, THHFH will build on the efforts and achievements of the last two years and will undertake a number of new initiatives. 
  • Becoming a HUD Certified Housing Counseling Center for homeownership counseling and adding corresponding classes and services for both prospective and existing homeowners.
  • Revise marketing materials and expand outreach efforts to increase awareness and participation in HOPE Program services.
  • Offer home ownership classes that focus on saving for repairs, the value of routine home maintenance, reducing the length of home mortgages by paying on the principal monthly, and taking other steps to ensure future self-reliability.
  • Bringing successful home buyers into our offices to track their progress and measure the impact of THHFH’s programs and services.
  • The HOPE Program will serve approximately 2,100 people over the next five years as shown below:
  1. Financial Literacy Program will serve 1,200 clients with a 100% increase.
  2. Life Skill Classes (Home maintenance, saving for repairs, investing for the future) will serve 900 clients with a 200% increase.
Long-Term Success

Long-Term Success - As we have a 20-30 year relationship with our families, we are truly able to track life changing results from the success of our program. Transformational changes included from self-reliance and permanent, safe, decent and affordable housing is many:

1. Improved financial security

2. Improved health and well-being
 
3. Improved graduation rates of children and higher education of parents and children
 
4.  Improved professional growth 
Program Success Monitored By

  1. Number of additional families served through the HOPE Program due to marketing to the greater community of Jackson County. Tracked in efforts to outcomes software.
  2. Number of goals met by the clients. Tracked in efforts to outcomes software.
  3. Number of families that graduate from the HOPE Program and move into permanent home ownership.  Tracked in the efforts to outcomes software.
  4. Becoming HUD Certified to add additional education and expertise to the services provided through the HOPE Program. 
  5. Long-term program success is more families moving from sub-standard housing to safe, decent and affordable permanent home ownership which will ultimately improve the health and well-being of the family members; improved financial security; and improved educational opportunities and professional growth.  This is measured through annual family surveys.
The first year will be focused on incrementally adding home maintenance classes, classes for staff to become a HUD certified housing counseling center, and extensive marketing to raise awareness in our area. We expect to see a 25% increase in the first year from adding these activities. Serve approximately 212 people in 2017. In subsequent years, we will continue to add classes on saving for home repairs and investing in the future.

Examples of Program Success

Below is one example of an early success for one of our clients:

A client came to us in 2016 needing help with budgeting and paying off credit cards that were out of control so she could ultimately purchase a home.  We guided her through the process and help her find a financial partner that would provide her with a lower interest rate on her car.  She refinanced her car loan from 14% to 6.9%, changing her car payment from $554 to $415. That saves her almost $1700 a year, and about $5,000 for the remaining 3 years of her loan!!! The money she is saving on her car payment is going directly to reduce the debt on her credit cards. With her tax refund, she will be able to pay her credit cards off.  Her short-term goal was to pay off her credit cards and improve her credit score.  In the short time our counselor has worked with this client, she has almost completely paid off her credit card debt, saved money on her car interest rate and she has improved her credit score went from 546 to 621. Now she can dedicate more dollars to a secure future with purchasing an affordable home, which will improve health, nutrition, and extra revenue for retirement as she continues to become more self-reliant.
