Home Preservation Program and Aging in Place

Now Taking Applications for Lee’s Summit Home Preservation Program

Aging in Place:

Aging in Place is a movement to not only enable people to age safely in their homes, but also to create an environment where older adults can continue to learn and contribute, develop relationships with people of all ages, maintain a healthy lifestyle, live independently, and receive healthcare and support services that are community-based.

Roughly 20% of the residents in Jackson County are 60 years or older and 18.5% of this population lives in poverty. Truman Heritage Habitat works with elderly residents to upgrade or restore their homes so they can continue living in their houses, be independent, and contribute to their communities.

Household income for Lee’s Summit potential applicants must be below 80% level (in chart)
