Who We Are
kansas city nonprofit
Since our founding in 1979 by John and Mary Pritchard, Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City has pursued our vision of a community where everyone has a safe, decent and affordable place to call home.
What began with three homes in the Boston Heights/Mount Hope neighborhood has grown into the largest Kansas City nonprofit home builder in the region — serving Wyandotte, Leavenworth, and Johnson counties in Kansas, and Clay, Platte, and Jackson counties in Missouri (view a map of our service area).
Each year, we partner with thousands of families to help them achieve their dream of affordable housing.
Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Habitat for Humanity International and its affiliated organizations (including Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City) will not proselytize. Nor will Habitat for Humanity work with entities or individuals who insist on proselytizing as part of their work with Habitat for Humanity. This means that Habitat for Humanity will not offer assistance on the expressed or implied condition that people must adhere to or convert to a particular faith or listen and respond to messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith.
Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City gives a portion of all our donations to Habitat International’s Tithe Program, which encourages Habitat partners to donate a small portion of what they raise in support of building homes in developing countries. Through this global tithe program, we have impacted more than 700 families in Haiti, Uganda, and Nepal, in addition to the homes we have built locally.
