April 26, 1983: Construction Volunteers change the future of Habitat KC

Board members discuss the possibility of relying primarily on volunteers for the first time to build a home. Up to this point, HFHKC had used construction professionals to build the houses, with volunteers providing help with painting, finishing, and doing yardwork on the properties. After some successful experiments, this becomes the standard practice and helps HFHKC to keep costs of construction low.
