Our partnership with Major League Baseball

On Sunday, Oct. 28, Major League Baseball highlighted our work during Game 4 of the World Series

This recognition brought national attention to the continuing and critical need of affordable housing around the world.

Together, we have built 46 homes

  • MLB first partnered with us in the fall of 2005 to assist in recovery efforts after hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
  • Since then, 46 homes have been constructed.
  • Build sites have included Major League ballparks, MLB Spring Training locations, the 2005 World Series, the Inaugural World Baseball Classic and the 2006 Major League Baseball All-Star Game.
  • Nine of the homes were built this year in partnership with families who lost everything after devastating tornadoes ripped through the communities of Joplin, MO and Tuscaloosa, AL in 2011. 
  • Two of the homes were framed during this summer’s 83rd MLB All-Star Game, in the parking lot of Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. 


Shining a light on our partnership

“As a social institution with important social responsibilities, Major League Baseball is proud to continue using the attraction of the Fall Classic to make a positive impact in people’s lives.”
