About Us

Community Outreach

Community outreach is an important component to our lives and strengthens TBE Construction as well. We believe in giving back, and we are proud to work with groups throughout the area that could use our assistance.

Don't wait to make a difference in the lives of others. Today is the day. Make a difference.


GYTTE (pronounced Jit-ee) was founded in 1977 as a social outreach project of the Methodist Church of Mexico to combat hunger and poverty in the rural sector.
The purpose of the "Give Ye Them to Eat" program (GYTTE) is to strengthen the capabilities of marginalized people and communities to meet their basic needs, and to determine and sustain a just and integrated development process. Participatory methods and development tools are used to create conditions in which change can take place from within the communities. GYTTE uses people-centered approaches to development.

Funding is needed to host courses and classes at GYTTE's "Tree of Life" Training Center. Workshops are also offered on location in the village communities.

Christmas in October

Rebuilding Houses, Lives and Neighborhoods in Greater Kansas City

Christmas In October was started in 1984 by Dick Miller and John McMeel, the founders, along with about 100 volunteers, including friends, family and students from Rockhurst High School. They worked on 20 houses their first year. Since then, the program has grown to include thousands of volunteers from hundreds of different organizations from throughout the metropolitan area working on over 500 houses each year. It is one of the largest volunteer programs of its kind in the United States.

The homeowners we seek to help are primarily the elderly and disabled, but also include other homeowners with young children, who lack the financial resources and skills to make necessary repairs to their homes.

This program is about more than the homeowners we help though. It also brings together people from the whole social-economic spectrum. It provides an opportunity for people to become more intimately familiar and connected with neighborhoods they might not otherwise have reason to visit but hear about on the news; and it provides an opportunity for people to build better relationships with other volunteers and the residents of those neighborhoods. It also provides a great opportunity for people and businesses to contribute to the community in a very direct and positive way. We estimate that we currently have an impact of over $2 million on the community each year.
