Join Us on September 21 for Rebuilding Day 2024

Rebuilding Day is the flagship program of Rebuilding Together Kansas City. It’s a one-day project blitz that mobilizes hundreds of volunteers to complete critical repairs and safety modifications across the community. In 2023, we were able to fix 16 homes in a single day with the support of our generous partners and volunteers. We have a goal of 25 homes this year, but we need your support!

Will you join us? Choose a crew leader and get your group of volunteers registered. Site sponsors are also needed. Contact Scott Hickox today to get started on your path to becoming a [Re]builder! Learn more here.

Looking Toward the Future: Rebuilding Together Kansas City is [Re]imagining the Possibilities

Rebuilding Together Kansas City currently serves over 150 families each year, primarily in Clay and Platte counties. Moving forward, we have our sights set on greater things: greater impact, greater numbers of neighbors served, greater circles of those we call partners.

Rebuilding Together Kansas City’s staff and Board of Directors have developed a strategic plan for 2024-2026 that will lead Rebuilding Together Kansas City into the future. From increasing staff capacity to cultivating new corporate partnerships to increasing the number of homes we repair annually, we’re looking at a bright future for our organization, those we serve, those we partner with, and those we have yet to reach.

Eighty-Seven & Running Partners with Rebuilding Together Kansas City to Transform Home of Former Athlete

Kansas City, MO – Gloria White is a former athlete decorated in track and field accomplishments. Her life has been forever changed by another decorated athlete – Travis Kelce and his Eighty-Seven & Running Foundation. Thanks to a major investment in the work of Rebuilding Together Kansas City, Eighy-Seven & Running was instrumental in helping to complete needed repairs and safety modifications on White’s home of 56 years.

“Rebuilding Together Kansas City exists to help some of our most vulnerable neighbors stay in their homes,” said Scott Hickox, executive director of Rebuilding Together Kansas City. “Miss Gloria has been a fixture in her neighborhood for decades, and we are thrilled to make it possible for her to be able to stay there. She and the neighborhood will both be better off as a result.”

With a $30,000 grant from Eighty-Seven & Running, Rebuilding Together Kansas City was able to assist White, 79, with repairing and updating her home to accommodate her limited mobility. White is partially wheelchair bound due to arthritis, joint pain, and other health issues. The repairs, which were completed in early December, included fixing the roof, making bathroom and kitchen repairs, installing grab bars, adding railings, addressing major plumbing issues, and more. Without assistance, she may not have been able to continue living in her home.

“I thank God so much for the work they did here at my house,” she said. “You never know which way your blessing will come, but it will be at the right time.”

Rebuilding Together Kansas City works to eliminate unsafe and substandard living conditions in neighborhoods throughout Kansas City’s Northland. The organization has helped over 125 senior citizens, low-income families, veterans, and physically challenged residents in 2023 – a nearly 25% increase over last year. As a nonprofit organization, Rebuilding Together Kansas City is dependent upon charitable contributions and the work of hundreds of volunteers.

“For anyone interested in giving, serving, or connecting with our work, we have a place for you,” said Hickox.

Rebuilding Together Kansas City currently has over 75 households on its waiting list, each needing a variety of repairs or modifications. Those seeking to partner with the organization are encouraged to contribute to its current fundraiser on social media.
