Summit Homes broke ground on the next charity home project benefiting Drumm Farm Center for Children. Summit team members, Drumm Farm representatives and trade partners came together to officially kick-off the 2021-2022 charity home project named Raising Hope KC.

“We are thrilled to partner with Summit Homes. The outpouring of support from their trade partners is truly remarkable. This project will make a huge impact on our plans to expand our campus and be able to support more children in need,” says Brad Smith, Executive Director for Drumm Farm.

Summit Homes partners with their network of local trade companies on materials and labor to build the home at zero cost. For the first time ever, the home will be built onsite and donated to Drumm Farm instead of listed on the real estate market. The home will be completed Summer of 2022 and progress will be documented on

The two-story traditional home features seven bedrooms, five bathrooms, a finished lower level, two-car garage, a loft study area and loads of design appeal. The front elevation will include a partial brick front and garage entry on the side.

Raising Hope KC helps support Drumm Farm’s mission to provide a nurturing environment that inspires and yields lifelong success of children and young adults. Drumm Farm helps children in foster care, homeless young adults and those aging out of foster care build successful lives by providing programs and services that support forever family environments, emotional and physical well-being, educational opportunities and personal growth.

“Drumm Farm is doing incredible things for foster children in the Kansas City metro and we are thrilled to support their efforts. We are lucky to have some of the best trade partners, suppliers and vendors that are willing to partner with us on our tenth charity home. Without their support this project would not be possible,” says Zalman Kohen, Summit Homes COO.
