“We are never alone”

Moments of gratitude shared by our partner families and homeowners offer us hope and inspire us. “When I went to pick up food for tonight I pulled up to the drive-through and the worker said the car in front of me had paid,” Karissa told us at her home’s dedication ceremony. “Simple moments like these help me remember that I am never alone and that God has many forms and is always present.” Karissa’s house was built during the UMB Community Build and was sponsored and built by the Wichita community, a fact that touched Karissa deeply. “Everyone I have met during this time has truly impacted my life.”


Karissa worked alongside volunteers to build her home in the Rock the Block neighborhood. She is forever grateful to everyone who helped make her dream of homeownership come true.
