Home for Little Heroes

Built by Summit Homes, benefitting Children’s Mercy. A unique partnership building healthy communities together by ensuring all kids have access to the very best pediatric health care.

Summit Homes LogoHome for Little Heroes is a unique partnership with Summit Homes and their premier trade partners who donated labor, materials and services to build an exceptional Johnson County home. Once the home is sold, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Children’s Mercy. This is the first-ever Children’s Mercy Home for Little Heroes. 

About the Home

In February 2018, Summit Homes, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate, broke ground on the Home for Little Heroes, a remarkable Johnson County home in the Reserve at Ravenwood subdivision in Olathe. The 5,437 sq. ft. home sits on an estate-sized treed lot within walking distance to the new community pool, and features a contemporary Farmhouse front elevation that incorporates the latest in trends in home building and design. The heavy contrast of the dark accents on a white backdrop provides a modern twist on the rustic elegance of a traditional farmhouse style with peaked gables and a large wrap-around porch.

Meet Our Hero: Levi

H4LH_story v1

Having a child with special needs isn’t something parents plan for. But when Dan and Julie learned that Levi needed not only a family, but also serious medical care, they decided that adopting him was the right decision.

Levi was born with Chronic Kidney Disease and clubbed feet and hands. When Dan and Julie brought Levi back home to Olathe, KS., they found an entire community willing to help support their whole family. At Children’s Mercy, they met teams of specialists across several disciplines open to understanding Levi’s unique needs and ready to fight for their little boy.

Today, Levi runs as fast as any two-year-old and has full use of his hands. He is under the care of several specialists at Children’s Mercy as he waits for the special gift of a kidney transplant. Currently, 40 children at Children’s Mercy are awaiting life-saving transplants.

The Ryff family’s experience, both within their own community of Olathe and at Children’s Mercy, inspired them to share the story of their hero, Levi, and to partner with the Home for Little Heroes.

“The Home for Little Heroes is financially supporting this amazing institution that has done so much to support us. Olathe is exploding with growth. Many of those families now, or at some point, will need the help of Children’s Mercy. The Home for Little Heroes is helping to support the care and health of all of these families!”
