Front Porch Alliance works together with Kansas City's eastside children and families to meet their changing needs at home and in school.


Front Porch launched in 1999 with three volunteers going door-to-door in the Ivanhoe neighborhood, asking how they could help. For more than 20 years, our programs have impacted families in Eastside Kansas City. Today, we remain dedicated to intentional partnership with area residents as they overcome multiple, concurrent, and often systemic success barriers. Our deep community roots link participants to resources that help balance the inequitable distribution of resources and opportunities impacting people’s ability to succeed. We reach more than 700 individuals annually through a continuum of programming chosen and shaped by our community. Our mission is to partner with Eastside children and families to meet their changing needs at home and school. Programming includes: - NEIGHBORHOOD FAMILIES: An early childhood education, home-visiting program for children (birth to five) that meets families’ basic needs and provides childhood development resources. - YOUTH JOURNEYS: A catalog of six no-cost educational youth programs for ages five to 16 featuring a social-emotional health focus. - COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT: A collection of campaigns to engage, educate, and support the community.
