West Heights UMC partners with Wichita Habitat for Humanity to help deserving, low-income families build and purchase affordable housing.  Stability and self-reliance.  Healthy, happy families.  That is the result of what Habitat does.  After purchasing their home, families tell how their lives are changed: kids, no longer crowded into bedrooms, space to study and their grades improve; the home’s dining room provides a place for everyone to share about their day and become closer; families start savings accounts; children graduate from high school, attend college and become homeowners themselves.  To serve, no skills are required - just a compassionate heart and a willingness to learn!  Our teams have hung outdoor siding, installed roofing and drywall, painted and landscaped, all with the help of skilled Habitat construction staff. To learn more about this program, please click here.  If you have questions about this mission program and would like more information, please click here - we will get back with you soon!
