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 Alliance was founded in 1999 in the Ivanhoe neighborhood of Kansas City, Missouri.

Begun as an intentional partnership with Ivanhoe residents, FPA’s original goals were to address broad community needs of safety and improved life quality. Over the years FPA has refocused its vision to meet the evolving needs of the neighborhood.
