Who We Serve
Rebuilding Together Kansas City recognizes and values the diversity of the Greater Kansas City, Missouri area, and we seek to provide essential and equitable services to those in need while embracing differences of culture, ethnicity, race, religion, international origin, sexual orientation, physical abilities, socio-economic status, age, and gender.
Applications for repairs are received throughout the year, and families and individuals that fall within our income guidelines (50% of Housing and Urban Development's poverty level for this area) are approved for estimates. Projects are completed as funding is secured.
Inspired by his experiences with the Rebuilding Together affiliate in Wichita Falls, Texas, Liberty leader Clay McQuerry wanted to have similar experiences in his own local community. Clay started the Clay County affiliate with the first meeting of its board on June 21, 2001. Articles of incorporation were completed and Rebuilding Together Kansas City was approved as a 501(3) organization effective March 29, 2002.
The Clay County, Missouri affiliate began as "Rebuilding Together Liberty," but changed to "Rebuilding Together Kansas City" in 2017 when our services grew to include Platte and Jackson Counties.
