​INDEPENDENCE, Mo. — In hopes of building more houses in the Kansas City metro, the Truman Heritage Habitat for Humanity in Independence needs the public’s help.

The organization has a large list of projects, and in order to finish, officials say they want to triple their volunteer workforce.

“We have really ramped up our housing projects right now, and so we’re really excited to be able to work on those projects,” said Lindsay Browne, community engagement manager for Truman Heritage Habitat For Humanity. “The speed we can get those projects done is based on how many volunteer days we can have and how fast we can move.”

The Truman Heritage Habitat for Humanity currently has around 20 to 30 volunteers a week, but officials would like to see that number increased to 80 to 100 volunteers, preferably on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

“We would love to just fill that roster so that we can just get these projects going fast before it gets too cold,” Browne said.

On Wednesday, a team of volunteers were working on a house near U.S. 24 and Sterling Avenue in Independence. For many of them, this is the kind of work they enjoy doing.
