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.

NAP Credits Maximize the Benefits of Your Giving

Rebuilding Together Kansas City is transforming lives in the Northland by helping our most vulnerable neighbors stay in their homes. We are ensuring that low-income families, seniors, veterans, and those living with disabilities have homes that are warm, safe, and secure. We do this by making needed accessibility modifications and completing critical repairs; and, we are able to do this in an incredibly cost-effective and efficient way. In fact, for every $1 spent on our services, there is a projected $2.84 value returned in the form of improved health, increased safety, maintained independence, and cost savings – that is a 184% return on investment!

You have the unique opportunity to not only support the work of Rebuilding Together Kansas City, but to do it in a way that benefits your business through Missouri’s Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) tax credits. Thanks to Rebuilding Together Kansas City’s participation in this program, eligible donors can receive a tax credit equaling 50% of your charitable contribution, on top of claiming the donation on your itemized deductions. You receive a tax benefit, and we are able to help more neighbors in need. It’s a win-win situation!

If you would like more information on how your business can partner with us through this program, contact Scott Hickox at scott@rebuildingtogetherkc.org.

(Please note that our NAP credits are limited and available on a first come, first served basis for donors willing to invest at least $1,000.)

Rebuilding Together Kansas City Gains New Director

LIBERTY — For 22 years, Rebuilding Together Kansas City has helped hundreds of individuals and families in need make their homes safer.

Clay McQuerry brought the Rebuilding Together concept to the Northland from Texas, and by 2002, the first eight houses were worked on during the first Rebuilding Day.

McQuerry retired and has turned the helm over to Executive Director Scott Hickox. Hickox knew of the nonprofit when he served as pastor of Liberty Christian Fellowship.

“I believe that I want to spend the last part of my career giving back to the community,” he said. “My faith drives what I do, and I love to help people. Giving back has the most satisfaction.”
