Our website has been updated with a revised look to demonstrate more clearly how Front Porch and Covia have come together as one organization, united as Front Porch Communities and Services.

While you’ll see changes to our name and our logo, you’ll find consistency in how we continue to provide the same care as a non-profit provider of aging services.

We invite you to explore the website to learn more.

Creative Aging Symposium 2023:

Paths to Rediscovery

Life is a winding path full of challenges and moments of joy, both of which fuel our resiliency. The sixth annual Creative Aging Symposium asks us to pause, rediscover pathways to joy, and embrace a sense of play. A lineup of artists and speakers will share tools, practices, and experiences that build creative confidence. This is how we move forward together, living with joy in good company.

The Creative Aging Symposium is hosted by Creative Spark, Well Connected Español, and older adults in our programs.
