KCHBA Members Help Rebuild After Fire

KCHBA Members Come Together to Help Raytown Family After Fire
As the result of a major fire in August 2020, one Raytown Family was left without a home. In the midst of an already challenging 2020, their entire life was turned upside down when all of their personal possessions were destroyed with no insurance in place. In addition to being suddenly homeless, the family had additional challenges by having two special needs children, as well as their father who previously suffered severe brain trauma.

Local law firm Bartimus Frickleton Robertson Rader partnered with Kevin Green of Kevin Green Homes to bring this family’s home back-to-life. Each year the law firm adopts a family in some capacity. Over the years the projects have gotten bigger and bigger.

“Hearing about the family’s struggle broke my heart,” Kevin Green said.  “I knew we had to do something big and fast.  What better way to bring the community together – at the start of a new year – than to rebuild a dream home for this family.”

Kim Green, Business Manager at Bartimus Frickleton Robertson Rader, pulled her husband in to do the impossible job.  Every single member of the “dream team” offered to donate 100% of their time, materials and expertise to help rebuild the family’s home. Once Kevin Green completed the building work, the employees at Bartimus Frickleton Robertson Rader got to work on finishing out the house with furniture, accessories and every other thing you would need if you were to start over.  “Everyone at Bartimus Frickleton Robertson Rader were honored to serve alongside incredible local companies and contractors to make this project a reality.  In very uncertain times, they have gone above and beyond at every level.”  Kim added, “We are thrilled to have been able to help this very deserving family.  We can’t wait to see the smiles on their faces.”
