Building Homes and Empowering Families

For 20 years, Community Housing of Wyandotte County (CHWC) has been transforming vacant lots and blighted properties into thriving neighborhoods where families are happy to live, work and play. Now, we need your help to do even more to stabilize, revitalize and reinvest in our Kansas City, Kansas neighborhoods.

CHWC uniquely combines three proven strategies to achieve unprecedented redevelopment of our neighborhoods:

  1. New & Renovated Housing: Building homes at market-rate value to increase property values, generate tax revenue and build lasting financial assets for families.
  2. Homeownership Promotion & Preservation: Empowering families to achieve, preserve and sustain their dream of homeownership with homebuyer and financial education and purchase-assistance programs.
  3. Community Building & Engagement: Leveraging arts and health initiatives to create beautiful, healthy public spaces where neighbors can gather together.

Homeowners who attend a pre-purchase homebuyer education class are 30% less likely to default on their mortgage. 86 percent of each dollar to CHWC is invested in our program support. Plus, every dollar you invest in CHWC yields a nearly $3 investment in Wyandotte County, generating tax revenue that supports our police and fire departments and schools.
We invite you to join us in building more homes and empowering more families in Kansas City, Kansas!
