KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Habitat for Humanity is looking for a family to purchase a home that has already been built.
Normally, a family is chosen, then they help design and build the home, but the family slated to take over the home at 740 Troup Avenue in Kansas City, Kan., has backed out, said Tom Lally, executive director of Heartland Habitat for Humanity. The home has a unique design, he said, as well as being disability friendly with outdoor amenities.
"This design is really meant to illicit the homeowner back out into the neighborhood, back out into the community, trying to really bring out that neighborhood feel of what homes used to be, and what hopefully, homes are like in the future," Lally said.
An eligible family must meet certain financial requirements and will still have to perform the required 350 hours of sweat equity to get the home. Applicants are asked to call 913-342-3047 or visit
