There were lots of smiles and more than a few tears shed when Jackson County Executive Frank White, Jr., surprised two deserving Kansas City families who have endured life challenges with new homes at the Ivanhoe Community Center in Kansas City this morning.

The homes were awarded as part of the Constructing Futures program, which Jackson County started in 2009. To date, a total of nine homes have been gifted to local families in need of housing.

While both families had applied to Constructing Futures, they were surprised to learn they had been gifted with the houses. County Executive White made the announcement by pointing to each family and exclaiming, “You get a house!”
