Background Statement

Habitat for Humanity Kansas City is the seventh-oldest Habitat affiliate, incorporating in 1979, two short years after Habitat for Humanity was born from a dream of Millard and Linda Fuller. With offices located in Kansas City’s urban core, the organization has built or rehabbed more than 310 homes in the past 38 years and believes that home ownership is the anchor to holistic neighborhood revitalization.

The Habitat KC model provides zero‐interest mortgages on decent homes to low‐medium income families who have:

  1. A need for shelter
  2. Income within the 30‐60% range of Area Medium Income
  3. A willingness to partner with Habitat KC by completing 300 hours of sweat equity.

In June 2013 we established a new initiative to expand our philosophy of creating sustainable neighborhoods with our Home Preservation Program (HPP). HPP focuses on owner-occupied homes in our partner neighborhoods, offering micro‐finance solutions for repair projects such as roofing, siding, and weatherization.

The entrepreneurial, fundraising arm of Habitat for Humanity Kansas City is ReStore. Through sales of donated new and used building materials, unrestricted cash is generated to support the organization. The goal for the 2017-2018 fiscal year is for ReStore to generate $4.8 million in revenue. 

In 2017 we celebrated our 38th Anniversary by completing 35 projects in the Kansas City Urban Core—we actually exceed the 35 and completed 39. These projects consisted of breaking ground on two new builds, nine rehabs, and 28 Home Preservation Projects. Additionally, 265 homeowner education hours were completed, 33,900 volunteer hours were tracked and 467 families were served in some way.

This year the organization is partnering with the Kansas City Land Bank to acquire properties to rehab. Those homes are on the same block and will become a catalyst for positive change in the neighborhood. Additionally, Habitat Kansas City is building homes near 43rd and Cypress and looking to expand production in that area. Habitat Kansas City’s vision is to provide a decent, affordable place to raise a family and build financial stability through home ownership. Its purpose is to build opportunities and hope for the urban core of Kansas City by empowering citizens and neighborhoods through affordable home ownership and financial education.

Impact Statement

2016-2017 Top Accomplishments:

  1. Nine partner families became homeowners
  2. The successful completion of a merger uniting the Heartland and Kansas City affiliates. The new organization, Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City now proudly serves six counties: Clay, Platte, Jackson in Missouri and Johnson, Leavenworth and Wyandotte in Kansas. 
  3. 24 Home Preservation Programs were completed. Projects included: new windows, upgraded gutters, new siding, new paint, porch repair, and life threatening home repairs such as new furnaces and HVAC repair.
  4. 34,167 volunteer hours were logged which accumulates to $788,232 worth of volunteer labor
  5. The launch of the HOPE Program. A financial counseling program that enables families to clean their credit and become better prepared to obtain traditional mortgages outside of the Habitat KC Affordable Home Ownership program.

2017-2018 Goals:
  1. Complete 18 new or rehab homes for partner families
  2. Complete 75 Home Preservation Program Projects
  3. Log 50,000 volunteer hours
  4. Provide financial literacy classes for 150 families

Home ownership has substantial economic impact on families and communities. Habitat homeowners experience lower housing costs (smaller percentage of income going to housing); higher disposable income for food, clothing, education and savings; greater stability (they move less often), better health due to lower exposure to hazardous materials like lead, asbestos, mold and mildew; and higher self-esteem and pride in ownership for parents and children alike. Habitat homeowners are more invested in their community and neighborhoods because they pay property taxes that support schools, public infrastructure, and public services.

Additionally, as part of the ongoing goal to promote home ownership in the urban core, Habitat KC started a new program called the Home Preservation Program. Currently, the Home Preservation Program targets the Boston Heights/Mount Hope neighborhood. This is the very first neighborhood Habitat KC ever partnered with to build homes. Residents are invited to apply for assistance in improving their homes interior and exterior. Types of projects residents apply for include but aren’t limited to the following:

  • Siding repair, replacement, and painting
  • Gutter repair and replacement
  • Roofing repair and replacement
  • Weatherization, including window replacement, weather stripping, and more
  • Furnace/HVAC emergency repair
  • ADA compliance issues
Needs Statement
Habitat Kansas City is a construction company, a human service provider (we prepare low-medium income families to become homeowners), a mortgage lender/servicer and a retailer. Our comprehensive program and services are designed to ensure families experience long-term success.
 
Our greatest need is for program funding. The construction cost to build a new house is $120,000. We receive substantial in-kind donations worth about $14,000 per house which allows us to build affordable houses for low to moderate income families and provide a zero percent interest mortgage. Habitat home repair and weatherization programs for low to moderate income homeowners to help them be able to stay in their home also require funding. The need for housing services to support home ownership in low income neighborhoods requires financial support from the Kansas City metropolitan area community. Additional needs arr listed below.
  • Volunteers are the lifeblood of Habitat for Humanity Kansas City. We have ongoing volunteer support. However, we are always in need of more volunteers throughout the organization. 
  • Fill board of director vacancies with qualified, well connected individuals who can provide innovative leadership as we move forward.  
  • Materials!  Donate new or used building materials to our ReStores - we sell your donations to the public at a reduced cost and the profits support Habitat for Humanity.  ReStore is a win for everyone involved!  Donors keep their materials out of the landfill and receive a donation receipt for tax deduction.  Shoppers are able to purchase goods at a reduced cost and feel good about where their dollars go.  Habitat KC homeowners and construction crews are able to select items to go into our homes saving on construction costs.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

Here at Habitat for Humanity Kansas City we are excited to kick off our 39th year in 2018. Thank you, to the numerous volunteers, donors and families, who make our organization a success! It is all of you who inspire us to keep furthering the mission of Habitat!

Habitat for Humanity Kansas City is one of the seventh oldest affiliates; becoming incorporated two short years after Habitat for Humanity was born from a dream of Millard and Linda Fuller. Habitat for Humanity is among the top three recognized social service, nonprofit brands in the country. We rank fourteenth out of 100 top nonprofits and have built or repaired more than 1 million homes, helping more than 5 million people across the globe. In the Kansas City urban core, we have constructed more than 300 homes in the past 35 years and we look forward to the next 300!
 
Stable housing is more than just the physical structure – it is a place to dream, hope, and become the best of ourselves. Adequate, owner-occupied housing is vital to the economic health of our neighborhoods. For this reason we restore vacant houses, build new homes and complete home preservation projects for current residents all within our target neighborhoods – Vineyard, Boston Heights and Mount Hope. We believe adding new homeowners and keeping current homeowners in their homes are both key to building healthy urban neighborhoods. 
 
When a family moves into a Habitat home, a dream becomes a reality – they have an affordable home of their own to gather with family and with friends. They have the opportunity to teach their children about responsibility, home ownership and investing in a community. Habitat for Humanity Kansas City typically serves first time home buyers or families who are unable to obtain conventional mortgage financing. Our homeowners must have a stable income adequate enough to pay for their housing and other expenses. We serve families earning 70 percent or below of the Median Family Income, or about $42,000 for a family of four. Additionally, they contribute 280 hours of “sweat equity” on the construction of their home and/or someone else’s home. Because Habitat houses are built using donations of land, material and labor, mortgage payments are kept affordable.
Programs

Short-Term Success In the 2016-2017 time period, three Habitat Kansas City partners become homeowners and two homes were rebuilt/rehabbed for families in need and twenty-one existing low to moderate families received home repairs.
Long-Term Success

In the 38 years Habitat for Humanity Kansas City has been in existence we have built or rehabbed more than 300 homes. Home ownership has a substantial economic impact on families and communities. Habitat homeowners experience lower housing costs.  Habitat homeowners spend less than 30% of their income going to housing and have higher disposable income for food, clothing, education and savings Habitat homeowners have greater family stability (they move less often), generally better health due to lower exposure to hazardous materials like lead, asbestos, mold and mildew; and higher self-esteem and pride among all family members, adults and children. Habitat homeowners are also more invested in their community and neighborhoods because they pay property taxes that support schools, public infrastructure and public services.

Program Success Monitored By

Habitat’s Construction Supervisor tracks the build schedule for each home to ensure construction is completed according to schedule. Each Habitat home passes several criteria before the homeowner moves in to ensure quality construction and home energy efficiency.

Habitat KC’s Homeowner Services Coordinator tracks each homeowner’s sweat equity hours on a monthly basis. Each homeowner is required to attend a financial education and counseling class.
Examples of Program Success
Home ownership is important for many reasons:
  • Children of homeowners are 25% more likely to graduate from high school and 115% more likely to graduate from college.
  • Homeowners are 28% more likely to repair and improve their home.
  • Owning a home is the largest source of personal wealth for most families.
  • The construction and sale of each home built generates significant impact on the economy including job creation, consumer spending, fees and taxes.
Description

The Homeowner Services Program is responsible for recruitment of partner families and providing ongoing services for families who become Habitat homeowners. Qualified families must have:

  1. A demonstrated need for decent shelter.
  2. Income in the 30-70% range of Area Median Income.
  3. Willingness to partner with Habitat for Humanity Kansas City by committing 280 hours of sweat equity.
The Program provides a series of classes on home ownership, financial management, budgeting, home maintenance and repair, credit and related topics. The classes teach families the responsibilities of home ownership and skills for long-term success. Each family in the program works with the Homeowner Services Coordinator as they complete the home ownership classes and sweat equity hours. The Homeowner Services Coordinator also provides referrals to services in the community as needed.

  • Families successfully completing the home ownership program will have a greater opportunity to become financially self sufficient and build wealth.
Program Success Monitored By Our Homeowner Services Coordinator works with the individual families on a one-on-one and group basis. The sweat equity requirement, 280 hours which includes 35 hours of homeowner education classes, is tracked monthly. 
Examples of Program Success

Since our founding 38 years ago, more than 300 families have completed the Homeowner Services Program. This number continues to rise alongside the need for housing in the Kansas City urban core. 

In two of the neighborhoods where we have built homes, Habitat KC homeowners have served as neighborhood presidents. Esther Kershaw is one of the first five families in Habitat Kansas City's first partner neighborhoods, Boston Heights-Mount Hope. Esther is currently serving as the neighborhood president and has played a critical role in the resurgence of their neighborhood.
Description

Habitat Kansas City ReStore is a building materials warehouse that sells donated building materials to the public at bargain prices. This environmentally friendly program provides sustainable income for our other programs as well as operating income. Some donated materials are used in the home building program which effectively reduces the cash costs of homes. Habitat ReStore income covers 100% of our overhead costs.  Additional net income goes toward construction costs.

  • The majority of the materials are donated by individuals and community partners. We also purchase some materials from business partners through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity International.   
  • An added benefit of the ReStore program is the more than 60 million pounds of materials diverted from area landfills over the past 15 years. 
  • There are five ReStore locations at 4701 Deramus, 8518 N. Oak Trafficway and 303 W. 79th Street in Kansas City, MO; 1270 Merriam Lane in Kansas City, Kansas and 8722 Sante Fe in Overland Park, Kansas.
The ReStore program has won several environmental awards and high acclaims for the number of Habitat families that now have a safe, decent place to call home due to the financial contribution of ReStore to Habitat Kansas City.

Short-Term Success

Habitat for Humanity Kansas City Restore operations over the last several years have annually provided greater revenues towards the core mission of providing needy families with decent, affordable and safe housing; and kept materials out of area landfills through reuse.

Long-Term Success

More than 60 million pounds of material have been diverted from the Kansas City landfill. 

Program Success Monitored By

Program success is monitored by tracking the donations coming in and the income made by selling materials to the larger community. ReStore income is a sustainable source of funding that enables Habitat KC to continue to build homes, especially  in the urban core. 

Examples of Program Success

ReStore staff has developed relationships with corporations and foundations that continue to provide new and used building materials which allows us to also use ReStore materials in our homes.

CEO Comments
Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City changes the lives of hard-working, low-medium income families by providing home ownership opportunities most would not be afforded through traditional means. However, our programs affect more than just the families who move into the homes we build or renovate.
 
Our families contribute positively to their neighborhoods and invest in the city. Habitat for Humanity Kansas City addresses a variety of challenges facing urban neighborhoods. By rehabbing vacant houses and building on vacant lots we reverse the negative impacts of decay and neglect, replacing them with stable, caring families who take pride in their homes. In addition, our Home Preservation Program breaks the cycle of neglect from vacant houses by assisting with upkeep in order to help keep homeowners in their homes. All of our programs bring positive investment and increased stability to the neighborhoods we serve.
