Giving New Life to Old Homes

At Habitat for Humanity, we bring new life to existing homes. In the process, we help families and individuals shine a light on their hope for a brighter future. 

Home Preservation Program

Every family should have the opportunity to afford, maintain and preserve their home. Unfortunately, there are many situations that create barriers for families to keep up with repairs, including unexpected life events or loss of income.  Habitat KC partners with qualified families to provide necessary repairs to their homes. Habitat KC’s Home Preservation Program is a part of our neighborhood revitalization efforts and provides home maintenance assistance to homeowners in strategic neighborhoods across the Kansas City metro area.

Services provided by the Home Preservation Program

Weatherization

Proper weatherization can save hundreds of dollars on utility bills. Projects include insulation work, door replacement, caulking, etc.

Rock The Block ™

Habitat KC’s Rock The Block ™ event concentrates hundreds of volunteers on clusters of homes in strategic neighborhoods, making needed repairs of all sizes. The impact is striking but it’s more than just curb appeal that is restored. Rock The Block helps restore pride in homeownership for the affected families and helps increase community connections along the way.
