Community Revitalization ProgramThe City of Roeland Park and Heartland Habitat for Humanity have partnered to bring neighborhood revitalization to the City through minor exterior home repairs. Projects include weatherization, painting, landscaping, wheelchair ramp installation, etc. Labor is completed by volunteers and homeowners. As a result, individuals and families remain in their homes longer, avoid code violations, and realize energy cost savings and increased home values. Homes selected for the program are identified by the City's Code Enforcement Department. Contact Heartland Habitat for Humanity if you are interested in volunteering.
