Kansas Partnerships

“There’s no place like home!”

When Dorothy uttered those famous words, she was talking about Kansas. Far from the black and white landscape portrayed in the movie, Kansas is known for its gorgeous sunflowers and its miles and miles of rolling farmland. But it shares one thing with every other state… aging infrastructure that can lead to unforeseen damages to service lines for residents. That’s why so many communities throughout Kansas have turned to the NLC Service Line Program by HomeServe to help their residents in their times of need.

Most homeowners don’t realize they are responsible for the water and sewer lines from the street to their meter, and are shocked to find they must pay to repair damage caused by age, tree roots, and other issues. Planning ahead and having a warranty program in place to cover these costs can make all the difference when an unexpected emergency occurs.

In fact, in Kansas we have:

  • A Partnership with the League of Kansas Municipalities;
  • 27 Municipal and Water Utility Partners;
  • Over 55,000 Active Water-Related Protection Plans;
  • Saved homeowners in your state over $4.1 million in water-related costs since 2017.

Nationally, we completed over 30,000 Completed Emergency Home Repairs in 2019.

HomeServe Cares Foundation

At HomeServe, caring is in the fabric of our corporate culture. Which is why we are committed to putting people at the heart of everything we do, and that includes our corporate social responsibility. We actively support and care for People, Veterans, the Common Good and Communities, both locally and nationwide with the HomeServe Cares Foundation.

Partner Testimonial:

“One of the significant selling points for the City Council and staff was the National League of Cities endorsement. NLC did the homework and vetted the program before endorsing it for its member cities. I believe the letter from the City provided a trust factor that is not present through direct solicitation to residents from other warranty companies who send letters that give the appearance of coming from the city. So far the Program has delivered what they said they would to the City of Hutchinson. I would be happy to visit with anyone about the program and our experience here in Hutchinson.” – John Deardoff, City Manager, Hutchinson, KS

“The Service Line Warranty Program exceeded our expectations.  For over six years, the program has been well received by our homeowners, and residents have been extremely satisfied with the service and savings when they had an issue.  I have been impressed with their stellar customer service team that has been quick to respond to all issues and gone above and beyond to meet the needs of our residents.” – Jermaine Reed, Former City Councilmember, KCMO
