Description: Wichita Habitat for Humanity (WHFH) will kick-off our 2018 Build Season on the Martin Luther King Day of Service. In partnership with Volunteer Kansas and the City of Wichita, WHFH will bring together over 100 volunteers to construct all of the interior and exterior walls of a five-bedroom house inside the Expo Hall of Century II Performing Arts & Convention Center.

Through this large scale service event, participants will take part in Dr. King’s enduring legacy of social justice, learn about the need for safe and affordable housing within our community, and help a hardworking family realize their dream of homeownership.
