Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City – #PRIDE Build

Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City was founded in 1979 by Mary and John Pritchard, along with members of a board of directors. Since then, the organization has built or renovated more than 800 homes in six counties in Missouri and Kansas. Its programs include Pride Build, which supports members of the LGBTQ+ community by providing free exterior repairs to their homes. This helps maximize the value, functionality, and safety of the houses. As Lindsay Hicks, Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City, stated, “Together, with community members and allies, Pride Build is building an inclusive Kansas City community where every individual and family has the opportunity to obtain and maintain fair and equitable housing.” Volunteers are needed year-round to work at construction sites, including those for Pride Build 2023, and ReStore facilities.
