Changing Neighborhoods, Changing Lives
Through Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City’s neighborhood revitalization work, we tailor our efforts by partnering with residents, community leaders and organizations to best address real concerns and improve the lives of the people who live in our focus neighborhoods. With residents leading revitalization efforts, Habitat’s work looks different in each community but always with the same goal; to make a lasting impact on the quality of life of its residents.
Pathway at Heritage Park
Pathway at Heritage Park marks our first land trust community, an innovative approach that enables us to build homes that are affordable for first-time homebuyers who meet our income guidelines while ensuring they remain affordable in perpetuity.
Wendell Phillips Neighborhood
The Wendell Phillips neighborhood has a rich cultural history in the urban heart of Kansas City but has experienced a decline in population and long periods of disinvestment. Habitat KC has committed to building more than 30 new construction homes.
Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City is partnering with the Lykins Neighborhood Association and several entities to transform the neighborhood. Over the next several years, 75-100 new homes will be built, and 100-150 homes will receive minor and critical repairs.
