New! Blue KC tool provides access to community support services

June 2023

Kansas City has a big heart (the Parade of Hearts and Charlie Hustle KC heart t-shirt did not happen by coincidence). One way the city cares deeply for the community is through extensive free and reduced-cost support services.

With the help of the new Blue KC Community Support Tool, you can easily locate those services in your neighborhood. The tool compiles local support services for food, housing, transit, health, education, and so on, in one directory.

Everyone needs a little help sometimes

It can be difficult to ask for help. With the Blue KC Community Support Tool, you can search for resources anonymously by ZIP code, category, keyword, program name, and organization name. The tool filters the results and populates the most relevant organizations.

Each organization provides extensive information, such as eligibility, availability, and cost guidelines. A green button on each organization’s entry connects you to next steps or an electronic contact form.

Share the Community Support Tool with employees

Please let your employees know about the Blue KC Community Support tool with a mention on your intranet, during in person meetings, or in an email. This flyer includes everything they need to know.
