So many wonderful success stories across the country of people coming together to build community. It happens all the time. In fact, the Bowling Alone people published Better Together: Restoring the American Community in 2003.
Front Porch Forum is our attempt to reverse these trends toward isolation. Front Porch Forum’s mission is to help neighbors connect and foster community within their neighborhood.

Social Capital, Inc. is another example. SCI’s mission is to “strengthen communities by connecting diverse individuals and organizations through civic engagement initiatives.”
