The Front Porch Initiative answers the crisis our society faces due to vanishing conversations, commonality, and community. We are a collaborative group of community leaders who are passionate about transforming community by investing in the next generation.
There was a time when such community occurred naturally within families and neighborhoods. People gathered on the front porch to swap stories, share a laugh, and enjoy each other’s company. Sadly, many of us have replaced our front porch discussions with weak substitutes, such as the Internet and entertainment, busyness and isolation.
But deep down, we all still long for the front porch—a place where we can share life. We need a gathering place to reconnect to those around us and act as a front porch in this increasingly isolated culture.
