William Hayes is the founder of Trades CoWork Space and ReuseHomes LLC, a new thinking development company that is creating safe, stable, and affordable housing in areas of disinvestment.
Prior to founding ReuseHomes, William spent 3 ½ years helping to develop the largest Historic Re-Development project in the State of Missouri. East 9 at Pickwick Plaza is a $65 million dollar rehab of an entire city block located in downtown Kansas City and consists of 260 market rate apartments, a 293 car garage and approximately 40,000+ square feet of commercial property. William served as Director of Governmental Relations and ran the Commercial Real Estate division for the project. He was routinely involved in what was the equivalent of daily “value engineering” exercises on how to stay within budget and on deadline with 120+ contractors on the job, as well as attended weekly OAC (owner – architect – contractor) meetings. Pickwick, now fully operational and successful, and has since won many awards.
The last ten years have been the core building blocks by developing the skills necessary to successfully build ReuseHomes. The skills learned and earned through marketing and design allow for a keen eye in brand quality, and a high level of marketing and social media knowledge. His work in the development world has imbedded deep knowledge regarding best construction practices, architectural requirements, and managing large crews while juggling multiple time sensitive projects on a daily basis. His time spent within City Hall and at the State Capital has given him extensive knowledge of the political games and traps that are so easy to fall victim to.

Real Estate, Politics, Marketing; these are the three pillars upon which the future will be built. No matter how grand the idea or design, only the most solid foundation will determine not only how high one can go, but how long it will last. The Core principles; Environment – Community – Done Right.

KC 360: Violence Intervention and Prevention Model*
KC 360: Violence Intervention and Prevention Model*

Introduced by Nancy Shawver


As Kansas City positions itself as a hub for economic investment and top destination to raise a family, KC Common Good is spearheading new initiatives to make our city safer.

Kansas City is at a crisis level for homicide, domestic violence and other violent crime. KC 360 is a comprehensive, community-based approach to reduce violent crime, build stronger community relations, increase access to education and jobs and implement responsible justice reforms. Fifteen years ago in Omaha, Nebraska, a nonprofit called the Empowerment Network was founded to reduce violence through community-based solutions that collectively involve prevention, intervention, enforcement, reentry and reform and support services. Since this time, Omaha has seen a 74 percent reduction in shootings and its homicide rate has fallen to its lowest in 30 years. Modeled after the Empowerment Network, KC Common Good is bringing the success of the 360 model to Kansas City.


Klassie Alcine is CEO of KC Common Good, she brings a wealth of knowledge from her unique background and experience as a political consultant, crisis management expert, non-profit executive, and successful entrepreneur. The mission of KC Common Good is to create an environment where all citizens can live safely and have access to real opportunities. KC Common Good is a collective impact model requiring multiple organizations to work together in reducing violence. This approach has been successful in cities across the nation, spurring lower homicide rates and decreasing gun violence after implementation.

She is a multifaceted public servant dedicated to uniting communities, joyful leadership, and conscious action for Greater Kansas City. Before joining KC Common Good, she was the director of corporate and community partnerships at Central Exchange, where she managed community relationships, expanded corporate partnerships, and supported marketing strategies to empower Kansas City leaders. She holds a master’s in public administration with an emphasis in urban administration from the University of Missouri-Kansas City Henry W. Bloch School of Management, a bachelor of arts in Political Science and Criminal Justice from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Klassie is an entrepreneurship scholar from the Regnier Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation and has a professional certificate in non-profit fundraising from the Midwest Center for Nonprofit Leadership. She is certified in the Science of Wellbeing from Yale University, gender equity, and conflict management.
