FRONT PORCH HOUSING

About Front Porch

Front Porch Housing is a two-year supportive housing program designed to help individuals and families in crisis build a firm foundation with the goals of continued sobriety, gainful employment, financial independence, and spiritual maturity. We partner with community sources such as Miracle Hill, Renewal, Jasmine Road, The Phoenix Center, Serenity Place, and more.

The heartbeat of Front Porch Housing is to welcome our residents so they know they are valuable, loved, and supported. We seek to extend this spirit of invitation through how we prepare every kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom on our campus. Check out this video tour to get a glimpse of what Front Porch Housing offers to support our residents, providing them with stability and hope for the future.

How to

Get Involved

pickup
DONATION PICK-UP

We send volunteer teams out to the greater Greenville area to pick up donations large and small. We have a great need for volunteers in this area.

sort
UNPACK, SORT, & ORGANIZE

Each week we meet to unpack, sort, and organize donations that have been collected. There is also an opportunity to paint and refinish furniture as well as pull furniture and design a home plan for a resident or ministry partner requesting furniture.

group
LOCAL SERVICE GROUPS

We encourage local service groups to serve together and have opportunities on the first Saturday of every month for groups to work as a team in our warehouse. Occasionally, we also have opportunities to move new residents into their new home. This includes moving, set up, and decorating.

mentor
INDIVIDUAL TUTORING OR MENTORING

We know the importance of personal connection and investment for our residents and for the growth of our community. We encourage individuals to serve alongside our residents as mentors, tutors for adult education, and kids and teens tutoring. We do require references, a volunteer application, and a background check to serve with Front Porch Housing. This is to help us place you in the best possible serving role and to protect our residents and their families.

GIVE TOWARDS MEDICAL NEEDS

Your gift will support the medical needs of our residents as we work to meet immediate health needs as well as build a foundation for long-term whole-body health and wellness.

GIVE UNUSED GIFT CARDS

We need your help with a new and unique project! Everyone has a few half-used or unused gift cards hanging out in their wallet—we are collecting those gift cards and turning them into cash. We have partnered with a third party to liquidate these cards. The cash will then be used to help with some additional funding for our residents in Front Porch Housing. Please consider contributing to this project! Gift cards can be dropped off at any local Grace Church location or mailed to Front Porch Housing at 1433 Cleveland St, Greenville, SC 29607.
