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 Spark

We generate a spark that provides energizing direction for your work, fostering new programs, elevating current ones, and ultimately, creating lives better lived.

Breathe a little magic into your programming! Our consultation and interactive workshops are designed to energize staff and inspire new approaches to meaningful programming with older adults. Grounded in creative aging research, we apply and teach a theoretical framework for developing new programming or enhancing existing programs.

Whatever aging services setting you’re in – home health, Area Agency on Aging, independent living, assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing, and more – we can help you deliver impactful, creative experiences to your community.
