The Kane Center

At the Forefront of "Aging Well"

The Charles and Rae Kane Center is the home of the Council on Aging of Martin County. The Kane Center is specially designed for seniors of all capabilities and walks of life – as well as their families and caregivers – to come together in a secure, comfortable atmosphere where they truly feel at home.

Named for a local couple who have championed senior issues for decades, the $15 million facility was developed through a public/philanthropic partnership, including $5.8 million from public funds, the Florida Legislature and a grant from the Florida Department of Elder Affairs.

The Kane Center is a nine-acre wooded campus located on Salerno Road just east of Kanner Highway. It is less than one mile from Martin Memorial South Hospital, the Robert Morgade branch of the Martin County Library System and the Chastain Campus of IRSC.

Green Building Technology

The Kane Center is certified in the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System by the U.S. Green Building Council and is also the first "green” senior center in Florida that will serves as an emergency shelter.

Emergency Shelter

The Kane Center is the only hurricane shelter in Martin County specifically designed for elders as well as their caregivers and pets. The structure is built to hurricane resistant standards of 140 MPH winds (a Category 4 storm); it can accommodate over 100 elders in its shelter capacity.
Because many at-risk seniors refuse to leave their homes when faced with leaving their pets behind, the Kane Center includes a pet shelter area for their furry and feathered friends.
