Clay McQuerry of Rebuilding Together Kansas City spent the first 18 years of his life in Buckner, Missouri, and graduated from Fort Osage High School in 1979. He received a Bachelor of Science in Social Work degree and a Master of Divinity degree from Texas Christian University before returning to Missouri.
"While pastoring for 16 years, I went on numerous mission trips all over the United States, Canada, and Mexico. I enjoyed helping the less fortunate people we served, but I also yearned to help the less fortunate people who lived close by. I knew the need was there even in my own neighborhood, but I did not know how to connect with them or how to provide assistance. Thanks to Rebuilding Together, I discovered the avenue I was seeking to reach our neighbors in need.”
With the help of several community leaders, Clay started Rebuilding Together Kansas City in 2001. He has received the Martin Luther King, Jr. Outstanding Public Service Award and the Service to Mankind Award.
