Dream Factory of Greater Kansas City ''Dream Managers''

The Dream Factory is an all-volunteer organization and our volunteers are essential in advancing our mission of serving children. There are a variety of ways you can get involved with the organization, from serving on a committee to helping out at our many special events and fundraising opportunities. Other areas that need volunteer support include our community relations, public relations and corporate sponsorship committees.

We encourage our volunteers to bring their unique talents and interests to the Dream Factory organization so that their experience will be just as personally rewarding as it is for the children we serve.

Some volunteers choose to become Certified Dream Managers. This special volunteer role plays an integral part in making a child’s dream a reality. Once a child has been approved for a dream, the Dream Manager works directly with the child and his or her family, taking care of all the arrangements to make it happen.

The Greater Kansas City Dream Factory is fortunate to have such a strong network of volunteers and supporters who never cease to amaze in fulfilling even the most challenging dream requests.

Event Planning Committee Help Needed
Non-profit supporting families facing cancer needs volunteers to help on an event planning committee!

Tenant Improvement Architect for Habitat ReStore
Needed: professional volunteer or firm qualified to provide architectural design services for a retail tenant finish improvement.

Volunteer tenant improvement architect needed for Truman Heritage Habitat for Humanity

 

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY DESCRIPTION:  Truman Heritage Habitat for Humanity (THHFH) in Eastern Jackson County, MO is seeking the commitment of a professional volunteer or firm qualified to provide architectural design services for a retail tenant finish improvement.  This position is ideal for a professional architect that shares Habitat for Humanity’s passion for helping lower-income households and neighborhoods to achieve strength, stability, and self-reliance through homeownership and that values the role that Habitat for Humanity ReStores play in achieving its vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live.  Every volunteer helps Habitat build homes, communities, and hope.

 

Habitat ReStores serve our mission in two ways.  First, ReStores sell surplus and gently used furniture, appliances, and building materials to the public at a fraction of the retail price, making home improvement affordable for lower-income families, landlords and the community at large.  And because our inventory is donated by local businesses, contractors and residents as a means of recycling, ReStores also support environmental sustainability be diverting useful items from the landfill.  Every ReStore donation helps to build stronger communities. 

 

Secondly, the net proceeds from the operation of Habitat ReStores provide a significant and flexible source of funding to support Habitat’s primary mission of building affordable home ownership opportunities for working families in need of safe, decent, affordable housing.  In this way, Habitat for Habitat has found a viable and long-lasting solution for achieving organizational self-sufficiency and has reduced its reliance on public funds and competitive grant dollars.  Every ReStore purchase helps to create the opportunity for a better life for the families we serve.

 

SCOPE OF PROJECT:

THHFH is currently vetting locations for a new Habitat ReStore in Eastern Jackson County.   Architectural services are required to identify, and eventually design, the scope of tenant improvements that will be required to achieve minimum occupancy standards and THHFH’s goals for operational efficiencies and overall performance.            

 

PROJECT PERIOD:

1-3 months depending on volunteer availability.

 

VOLUNTEER EXPERIENCE:

Minimum three years of professional experience as a licensed architect or structural engineer, preferably including design of retail tenant finish, including some inventory warehousing, parking lot design, and loading dock improvements.
