IV) Community Associations & Future Regional Planning for "Communities For All Ages"

Efforts to transform the Kansas City region into a livable community for all ages began in 2005, when the Foundation on Aging, a local nonprofit organization, with assistance of former congressman Dennis Moore, received a U.S. Administration on Aging grant to develop a community-based strategic plan for aging in metropolitan Kansas City. As a result, over 150 individuals, representing nearly 110 organizations, participated in conversations and listening sessions held over several months. That work was presented to the community at a forum in January 2007. Here are further highlights from KC Communities for All Ages history since that time: 


  • Community Preparedness for Aging was published by the Foundation on Aging, identifying four major areas of importance to older adults which must be incorporated into an action plan for meeting the challenges of aging in metropolitan Kansas City.
  • The Center for Practical Bioethics convened the listening session "Baby Boomers and the Ethics of Aging," which led to a strategic commitment by the Center to focus on aging issues. 
  • The Jewish Heritage Foundation identified "older adults" as a funding priority for their organization.


  • The Center for Practical Bioethics received a Jewish Heritage Foundation planning grant to focus on the intersection between aging, healthcare and technology; focusing on readiness, capacity and commitment. This became the KC4 Aging in Place initiative. Five focus areas were identified to support aging in community: caregiving; health services; housing, social and civic engagement; and transportation and mobility
  • The Aging in Place initiative, sponsored by Partners for Livable Communities, National Association of Area Agencies and the MetLife Foundation, held a national conference at the Kauffman Foundation.


  • Two interactive information sessions entitled "Is Growing Older, Growing Wise in Kansas City?" were held at the Kauffman Foundation Conference Center in Kansas City, Missouri.
  • was launched.


  • KC4 Aging in Community participated in the Spring Home Builders Show, visited by approximately 30,000 residents, with the universal design home being the primary attraction at the show.


  • KC4 Aging in Community became a program in the Community Development department at Mid-America Regional Council. With support and funding from the Jewish Heritage Foundation and the W.J. Brace Charitable Trust, Bank of America, Trustee, MARC continues to work in partnership with the Center for Practical Bioethics and other community partners.
