Update 06/16/20: Porchlight recently received a very generous donation from an anonymous donor!
They wanted these funds to benefit women and children who are served by Porchlight.  While we are still brainstorming, we want to use these funds in a way that will make the greatest impact on the lives of these households.  Some ideas include peer support, more robust services, incentives for participation in community programs that help reduce barriers, and eviction prevention and entry costs for families to obtain or maintain permanent housing.  We are excited to continue the process of vetting ideas and working with our families to come up with a plan that will have a lasting impact.  Thank you for this amazing donation, which will make a real difference in the lives of our families!

Porchlight’s work would not be possible without continued support from our funders and donors.
We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to everyone who has found a way to give or get involved, especially the leaders listed below.
