SeniorConnectKpt.org is the result of work accomplished by the United Way of Greater Kingsport (UWGK)’s Aging with Choices Vision Council.  This council, comprised of representatives from UWGK’s Member Agencies, community organizations, and community volunteers, and was formed to determine what the “perfect world” would look like for seniors in our community.  The Aging with Choices Vision Council surveyed the community, held community forums, networked, and conducted research related to what was working well and where gaps existed.  A major gap identified was around seniors having access to aging-related information.  SeniorConnectKpt.org was developed to bridge this gap.

The United Way of Greater Kingsport partnered with the Kingsport Times News Digital Group to design and build the web portal.  The First Tennessee Area Agency on Aging and Disability (FTAAAD) joined the partnership to manage the site; thereby, enabling them to build on their mission of providing support services for persons 60+ and other adults with disabilities in the eight counties of Upper East TN.  Other important partners include AARP and the City of Kingsport as well as our valued sponsors notated on the “Sponsor’s Page.”

Your feedback will enable us to continually improve SeniorConnectKpt.org, making it more valuable and useful to the Greater Kingsport community and beyond.  Email your suggestions or comments to datamanager@contactconcern.org or call 423-246-2273.
