Front Porch Program

 How Front Porch is Funded

 

Our goal is to enrich and support family life, encourage healthy neighbourhoods and that in turn will create stronger, caring and responsive communities.  The Front Porch program is a barrier-free program that aims to provide counselling and support services for families as they need them.

By providing barrier-free counselling and support without the bureaucratic red tape often associated with government referrals, we are proactive in providing families with solutions to their issues before they become unmanageable.

The Front Porch program relies 100% on donations.

To donate to the Front Porch Program please click the donate button on the right.
