Mission Statement The vision of Rebuilding Together Kansas City is to create "Safe Homes and Communities for Everyone."  Our mission is "Repairing Homes - Revitalizing Communities - Rebuilding Lives."  
Background Statement Since our inception in 2001, Rebuilding Together Kansas City (RTKC) has improved the living environment for disadvantaged residents by providing essential home repairs and safety modifications.   These improvements include, but are not limited to, such items as: plumbing, electrical, window and door repairs, heating and cooling restoration, lighting improvements, flooring repairs, bathroom modifications, wheelchair ramps, low-rise steps, roofing, and more. Most repairs are made during the annual Rebuilding Day held on a Saturday in September.  At the end of 2009, Rebuilding Together Liberty changed its name to Rebuilding Together Clay County.  In addition to expanding our services to the whole county, RTKC is now providing urgent repairs and modifications year-round through our Safe at Home program.  In May of 2013, we opened our RT Store where we accept donated building materials to be sold, recycled, reused, or repurposed.  All proceeds of the store support the overall services of RTKC to help homeowners in need. In 2017, RTKC expanded its Safe at Home program to Platte County. In July of 2017 Rebuilding Together Clay County changed its name to Rebuilding Together Kansas City to answer the call for further program expansion.
Impact Statement
Our primary goal is to eliminate unsafe and deplorable living conditions for disadvantaged families, including veterans, low-income families, seniors, and people with disabilities.

      2. Creating a safer living environment by improving accessibility.
      3. Keeping people from facing homelessness.
      4. Helping people to live in their own homes for as long as possible. 
Needs Statement
The most pressing needs:
  1. Financial support - The demands for our services continue to skyrocket each year, but the funding resources have not kept up with the demand.
  2. RT Store Volunteers - We need volunteers to help with stocking, computer work, organization, Craig’s List posting, building displays, repurposing, recycling materials, and picking up donations.  The hours for volunteering are flexible every day except Sunday.  Anyone interested in volunteering should contact the Store Manager, Ed Kephart, at 816.781.8814.
  3. Rebuilding Day Volunteer Crews - We can always use more volunteer crews on our annual Rebuilding Day - on a Saturday in mid-September.  Crew leaders select their project by attending our House Selection Meeting in mid-July.
  4. Safe at Home - Our year-round program utilizes retired volunteers who enjoy getting out of the house to help the less fortunate.  Our Project Managers train and supervise volunteers to complete home safety modifications.

Geographic Area Served Narrative Although Rebuilding Together Kansas City is interested in helping people in other counties, our primary service areas have been in Clay and Platte Counties.  Once funding resources have been obtained, our services will be offered in other areas.  We look forward to a future with a broader geographic service area when we can help many more families in need.
CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement Rebuilding Together Kansas City (RTKC) has improved the homes and lives of over 880 families in the Northland.  Due to the high demand for our services in neighboring counties, we are pursuing more funding and volunteers in those counties as well.  RTKC’s services include: replacing rotten flooring, fixing leaky pipes, repairing dangerous steps, installing grab bars and handrails, building ramps, modifying bathrooms, solving electrical problems, repairing deteriorated roofs, servicing furnace/air conditioning units, and more. We also perform weatherproofing projects, e.g. caulking, painting, installation of new doors and windows, so that homeowners can more feasibly afford their energy bills. Through our services, homeowners are able to enjoy a more comfortable, safe, and affordable lifestyle. RTKC’s membership consists of a ten-member Board of Directors, an Advisory Council of eight, one full-time Executive Director, one full-time Store/Project Manager, one full-time Project Manager, one full-time Development Director, one full-time Administrative Director, one full-time Store Assistant, a volunteer Chief Financial Officer, plus a growing volunteer base. We also have a committed group of Office Volunteers and Rebuilding Together Store Volunteers who donate their time for a couple of hours every week.  The Board of Directors oversees the total program and ensures that the services provided are of high quality and are meeting the needs of our clients. The Advisory Council is comprised of local community leaders such as: current and former Elected Officials, Housing Authority Executive Director, College President, Business Executive, and more – who pledge their support in a variety of ways.  As the cost of long-term care is skyrocketing, it has become obvious that our nation needs to place an emphasis on preserving affordable housing. RTKC is addressing this need. Further, one of the tremendous benefits of supporting RTKC is the way that your donation will substantially grow in value. Because of donated labor and discounted materials, RTKC is able to triple or quadruple the value of every dollar donated. On behalf of the entire RTKC organization, I sincerely hope you will help us to keep our less fortunate neighbors safe in their own homes by offering your support.
Description Rebuilding Day is our annual, one-day rebuilding blitz when volunteer crews complete home repairs and safety modifications for disadvantaged homeowners. We place a high priority on helping families with children, seniors, people living with disabilities, and veterans. Rebuilding Day is always on a Saturday in mid-September, and the House Selection Meeting is on a Thursday in mid-July.  Although individual volunteers are welcome, most of our crews come from churches, civic organizations, businesses, and schools.  If crews cannot participate on the designated Saturday in September, it is possible for them to help on other days during the year.

Short-Term Success
Short term success for Rebuilding Day would include:
  1. Eliminating substandard housing for Clay County residents. 
  2. Improving the lives of low-income homeowners by increasing their homes' safety, accessibility, and energy efficiency. 
  3. Recruiting volunteer crews from all communities.
Long-Term Success
Long term success for Rebuilding Day would be to eliminate substandard housing in Clay County, Missouri. We would accomplish this by:
  1. Having volunteer crews from all of the communities in Clay County who would work together to reach this goal.
  2. Service agencies throughout the county referring homeowners in need to RTKC.
  3. Increasing our repair budget by an effective, broad-based approach for all areas of funding (Government, Corporate, Churches, Foundation/Civic/Grants, Personal, and Rebuilding Day House Sponsors). 
  4. Obtaining a large pool of professional contractors who will partner with RTKC by donating or discounting their services.
Program Success Monitored By
We monitor the success of our Rebuilding Day projects by receiving evaluations from:
  1. Homeowners we serve.
  2. Volunteer crew leaders. 
  3. RTKC Board of Directors. We also meet as a board to discuss the evaluations and to make overall suggestions on how to improve our processes and procedures for having a more successful Rebuilding Day the following year.
  4. RTKC Staff meets weekly to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of our programs.
Examples of Program Success The evidence of our success is easy to find in the number of homes we are able to improve on a very limited budget.  Because we use donated labor and discounted materials, we are able to leverage the value of every dollar donated. On our recent Rebuilding Day alone, we completed essential repairs on 20 homes by using close to 400 volunteers.  One homeowner wrote: "I can't thank RTKC enough for all that they did for me. They gave me their time and talent. They did an excellent job. They did all of the repairs I asked for and much more - I could have never afforded to get the work done myself. This is why we need RTKC. Thanks to RTKC and their volunteers."
Description Rebuilding Together Kansas City's Safe at Home program is designed to improve safety in the homes of older adults and disabled residents. This program involves skilled Project Managers and volunteer laborers completing safety modifications, such as installing: grab bars, handrails, bathroom assistive devices, low-rise stpes, and wheelchair ramps. We also have Occupational and Physical  Therapists who conduct Home Safety Assessments which provide valuable guidance to our installers in creating a safer home environment. Our Project Managers have over 50 combined years of building and remodeling experience, and they oversee the completion of each project.  They also train and supervise the Safe at Home Volunteers.  The Executive Director is a Certified Aging in Place Specialist who provides oversight of the entire program.

Short-Term Success Rebuilding Together Kansas City is training and certifying volunteer craftsmen to install new adaptive devices. We receive reduced prices on our material purchases from local suppliers. We have a partnership with Liberty Hospital, North Kansas City Hospital, and Excelsior Springs Hospital to provide Occupational and Physical Therapist services for our home safety assessments. Our short term goals are to have 30 Safe at Home Volunteers on call to complete the home modification projects as they are needed. We are fortunate that Clay County Senior Services and Platte County Senior Fund provide funding for our projects for clients that are 60+ years old.  However, funding for those under 60 is a challenge.  Although we like helping seniors, we also like to help people of ALL ages who have disabling conditions.   We also participate in the Senior Falls Prevention Coalition of Clay/Platte Counties which networks the services of several local agencies including: Clay County Public Health Center, Clay County Senior Services, Northland Shepherds Center, Good Samaritan Center, Liberty Silver Center, and others. We are delighted to be a part of this effort to create safe and healthy homes.
Long-Term Success Long term success for our Safe at Home program will be found in the reduction of injuries caused by accidents in the home. Clay County was recently identified as having one of the highest rates of injuries from falls in the state of Missouri. Rebuilding Together Kansas City is striving to become the "go to" organization in Kansas City that will reduce those disturbing numbers. One of our overarching goals is to help residents stay in their own homes for as long as possible. One of the ways to achieve this goal is in making the home a safe haven rather than a place where accidents are waiting to happen. We plan to develop this program to where all of the hospitals in Clay County are referring their patients (identified as "at risk for falling") to RTKC when they leave the hospital. 
Program Success Monitored By
  1. Evaluations are completed by the homeowners to determine if we have improved the safety in each home. 
  2. A home safety assessment will be used to identify the areas that need to be modified. 
  3. The Certified Aging in Place Specialist and Project Manager refer to the assessment recommendations in order to make the best possible decisions in modifying every home to fulfill the needs for each client. 
Examples of Program Success

Success is demonstrated by these 2018 statistics:

  • 110 families served and homes improved
  • 183 residents benefited
  • Average income of 67% of households served = $17,946
RTKC began conducting follow-up surveys with our Safe at Home clients to find out if the modifications were reducing the number of falls in their homes. The results have been amazing: 2015 clients reported falling 62 times before our modifications and only 2 times after our modifications. 2016 clients reported falling 94 times before and only 4 times after.  This reveals a drastic reduction in falls in the homes we served, and it is an incredible testimony to the success of our Safe at Home program.
Description This is our year-round program that provides urgent repairs for low-income homeowners. The types of repairs that would qualify as urgent would include: no heat in winter, no cool in summer, no electricity, clogged drains, no hot water, dangerous and life-threatening situations, damaging roof leaks, and more.  This program usually involves professional contractors who partner with us to eliminate deplorable housing conditions.  These contractors donate or discount their expenses to assist us in helping these disadvantaged homeowners.

Short-Term Success
We already have a list of contractors who are partnering with Rebuilding Together Kansas City. These contractors include: electricians, plumbers, heating and cooling, roofing, concrete pavers, and general contractors. They are willing to provide their services at a donated or discounted rate. The short term success of this program would be to:
  1. Obtain enough funding to cover the costs of the urgent repairs. 
  2. Effectively reach the qualifying homeowners who are currently living in substandard housing.
Long-Term Success Long term success for this program will be to reach our goal of eliminating substandard housing. We strive to improve the lives of low-income families, and we accomplish that by making essential home repairs - particularly those that are urgent in nature.
Program Success Monitored By We keep detailed records of the services that are provided, and we keep certificates of general liability insurance on file for the contractors we use. Further, we obtain evaluations from the homeowners that we serve to provide valuable feedback for future improvements.
Examples of Program Success Rebuilding Together Kansas City started the year-round urgent repair program in the Fall of 2007 because of the large amount of requests we received from homeowners throughout the year. Instead of forcing homeowners to wait until our annual Rebuilding Day in October, now we can provide services to those in need when urgent situations arise. The types of repairs that we define as  urgent include: no running water, no hot water, no heat in the winter, no cool in the summer.
Description Rebuilding Together has become one of the most effective and productive organizations in improving the living conditions of our military families.  We help both the families of those currently serving in the military and the families of military veterans.  Our goal is to serve those who have so faithfully served our country.

Short-Term Success The short-term success of this program is to create a safe and healthy living environment where these servants can successfully recover from any injuries or disabling conditions in their own homes.  We accomplish this by installing grab bars, handrails, accessible showers, stair glides, low-rise steps, wheelchair ramps, and more.
Long-Term Success The long-term success of this program will occur when military and veteran families are able to live in comfortable, safe, and accessible homes.  We aim to help these families to stay in their own homes for as long as possible.  Many of the families that we help are living in terrible conditions that most of us would not tolerate.  We also ensure that they are able to safely navigate through their house by modifying their bathrooms and building wheelchair ramps.
Program Success Monitored By We regularly monitor our programs by receiving feedback from our homeowners.  We send an evaluation form when our projects are finished that requests their ratings and comments.  Our administrative staff and Project Managers are constantly pursuing the "best practices" for our program.  We look for the most effective, efficient, and financially reasonable approach to the ways that we repair and modify these homes.  Through this process, we have been able to increase our services and decrease our costs.
Examples of Program Success We served a veteran in Gladstone one year who admitted that he was close to being homeless.  He had no running water, only two functional electrical outlets, clogged plumbing, no working refrigerator, no central heating or cooling, and floors that were warped and deteriorated.  Our skilled volunteers transformed his house to where he now has a safe and functional home.  This is just one example of many where we were able to convert a substandard house into a comfortable and livable place. We love serving those who have served our country!  
Description Our RT Store opened in May of 2013.  As a "green" organization, we like to position ourselves to recycle, reuse, and repurpose building materials.  All of our inventory is made up of donated building materials.  We accept donations of all kinds, such as: cabinets, doors, windows, flooring, sinks, toilets, light fixtures, appliances, tools, fasteners, lumber, and more. In addition to selling these donated materials, we also reuse some of them in our rehab projects.  We will pick up donated goods, and we encourage people to shop at our store as well.  All proceeds support the services of Rebuilding Together Kansas City.

Short-Term Success The store's short-term success is measured by the growth of receiving donations and reusing or selling donated materials.  We are also creating new partnerships with area builders, remodelers, and suppliers to collaborate in this endeavor.  
Long-Term Success For years, we would receive calls from people who had building materials to donate to our organization, and we were not equipped to take advantage of these donations.  Now we are set up to pick up the donated materials and to either reuse them on our own rehab projects or sell them to others who are involved in their own building projects.  The long-term success of this program will be determined by the ways the store will be able to contribute financially and materially for our services.  We also like the "green" aspect of this store because it provides a community service for reusing, recycling, and repurposing these materials.
Program Success Monitored By The Store Manager and Executive Director will be regularly monitoring the success of the RT Store.  We are evaluating the best places to get quality donations, plus we are analyzing the most effective way to utilize the materials.  Some of the initial evaluations have been as detailed as how to display and price the materials in the store.  We realize this will be a learning process, but we have been overwhelmed by the positive response the general public has given.  The best identifier of success lies in the wonderful growth in our gross sales each year.  Last year was our highest in gross sales with a total of $128,870.00!  We have budgeted for an increase in 2019 to $150,000.
Examples of Program Success In 2016, we expanded our store and open it to the general public. We have received several benefits by having the store.  Donated materials drastically cut down the costs of our Rebuilding Day projects which enabled us to help many more homeowners.  At first, we were not sure if we wanted to accept appliances in our store, but agreed to it when we had an immediate use for donated stoves, water heaters, and air conditioners in helping our clients.   We are delighted in how this store has become a win-win for us by reducing our project costs and by creating a stream of profitability.
CEO Comments
Picture yourself living without running water or hot water, with no heat in the winter or cool in the summer, with drains that are backing up or electrical outlets that are throwing sparks, with holes in your roof and varmints living in your attic.  What would you do if you had to choose between paying for these repairs, making sure your utilities were not shut off for nonpayment, or having food for your next meal?  Most of us do not face these dilemmas, but most of our clients are faced with them on a daily basis.  We, at Rebuilding Together, strive to provide a solution to their dilemmas, so that they can live with comfort, dignity, and safety. 
Rebuilding Together Kansas City is one of the most efficient non-profit organizations that you will find. Because we use donated labor and discounted materials, we are able to multiply the value of every donation. Being one of over 130 affiliates nationwide, we form one of the largest volunteer organizations in the nation that is focused on improving the homes and lives of less fortunate residents. Through the efforts of over 5,000 volunteers, RTKC has been able to: help seniors age in place, assist people with disabilities to enjoy greater freedom, improve the living conditions for children who have suffered in terrible conditions, increase safety for residents living in dangerous situations, keep families from becoming homeless, and create more affordable homes by completing energy efficient projects. "Together We Transform" is our motto, and we delight in every application that comes our way that offers an opportunity to transform a neighbor's life. Buoyed by a powerful national organization, a growing volunteer base, and a supportive business community, RTKC is excited about our ability to make a significant impact in the lives of our neighbors in need. We hope that you will join us in this worthwhile mission.

CEO Comments With the aging population, we constantly pursue the best practices to provide the highest quality service possible to our seniors and people living with disabilities.  We strive to allow seniors to safely age in place, and we produce housing options with our accessibility improvements.  RTKC also consistently finds ways to eliminate substandard living conditions, and we plan to always focus on improving the homes and lives of our low-income neighbors.  The average annual household income of 67% of our clients last year was only $17,946.  We are serving people who are not financially or physically able to complete the repairs themselves.  RTKC believes that every person needs a home where they can live in safety, dignity, and independence.

CEO Comments

“As a Rebuilding Together Kansas City Advisory Council member, I am encouraging donors to consider making a contribution to our organization.  Rebuilding Together Kansas City has benefited hundreds of residents in need, and we are only able to serve these disadvantaged homeowners when others willingly support them financially.  At a time when it is so difficult to get funding, RTKC has been a great community asset and resource. The labor intensive work and dedication of the volunteers is commendable.  We need more donors to contribute towards new projects.“

Organization Comments One of the tremendous benefits of donating to Rebuilding Together Kansas City is found in the way we leverage all donations received. Because we primarily use donated labor and discounted materials to make our repairs, we are able to multiply every dollar. In 2018, we had $197,728 in donated labor and $27,524 in donated materials. In order to strengthen our financial health, we constantly strive to have a broad funding base that reaches many different resources.  We accomplish this approach by: pursuing grants throughout the year, fostering partnerships with a variety of like-minded agencies and foundations, nurturing relationships with civic organizations, churches, and local businesses, and by holding fund-raising events.  In addition, the RT Store is providing an income stream in support of our organizational budget.  We also benefit from a growing list of individual supporters who strongly believe in our mission to improve the lives of disadvantaged and vulnerable homeowners.  In 2017, RTKC hired a Development Director to further increase our funding base.  In years past, the Executive Director was responsible for all fund-raising efforts, so now he is functioning in a supportive role of the Development Director.  We feel strongly that this new staff structure will prove to be a very valuable addition to our financial position.
