Neighborhood Revitalization

BDC & Drumm Farm

The Foundation’s grantmaking in the category of Neighborhood Revitalization seeks to reverse or prevent blight in neighborhoods.  Builders Development Corporation (BDC) is a Kansas City-based Community Development Council working with Drumm Center for Children (Drumm Farm). BDC has a long history working in the Kansas City metropolitan area on a variety of projects including single-family, multi-family and rehabilitation housing developments. Another important local agency, Drumm Farm, provides family-style homes and support services for children in foster care and transitional housing and support to youth who are homeless and/or aging out of foster care. BDC has partnered with Drumm Farm to renovate a home to provide living quarters and meetings space for teens who are homeless and/or aging out of foster care. This is an example of collaboration, investments in neighborhoods and supporting youth to achieve their greatest potential.
