A Wichita-area nonprofit is getting ready to start construction on its second house at the Kinloch Price Boys Ranch.
Work is expected to be completed this summer.
Youth Horizons opened its first house nearly two years ago and is aiming for four homes and a full working farm on the 70-acre property on Wichita's outskirts at 11313 N. Woodlawn. The nonprofit works with at-risk youth in mentoring programs and residential care.
The group is only adding houses and amenities as money becomes available.
Youth Horizons president Earnest Alexander says the group is committed to avoiding borrowing.
One couple donated the property, while another person donated the money used to build the first home. However, Alexander says the typical donation is much smaller — $30 on average.
