About LAMP

The 1923 Linwood Presbyterian Church and 1931 Home for Convalescent Employed Women had been unoccupied since the mid-1970s. This project represents the culmination of over two decades of planning and collaboration to create a center for social services on Kansas City’s distressed east side. The church building had deteriorated significantly during the 30 years it sat vacant. Work in the 1990s stabilized and secured the structure for future rehabilitation. Most of the historic windows had been removed and the openings boarded up when the congregation sold the building in the 1970s. Little plaster remained on walls or ceilings due to extensive water infiltration.

In 2012, Linwood Place Development, LLC embarked on a sensitive rehabilitation of this unique space, retaining key historic elements of the church, with particular attention to the volume and extant ornament in the sanctuary, while accommodating the functional and physical needs of multiple tenants with distinct requirements. The buildings now house multiple non-profit tenants, including the Heartland Presbytery, the Front Porch Alliance, and ReDiscovery. Together these groups bring 60 jobs plus much needed social services for children and adults to the area. Their efforts will support the resurgence of the Linwood corridor and the Ivanhoe neighborhood. The delicate rehab of this unique building proves that the reuse and repurposing of religious buildings is possible with thoughtful planning and design.
