In numerous sites across the country, the Front Porch Project has proven to be an effective vehicle in reinforcing the necessity of personal responsibility and the belief in the "power of one" to make a difference in the lives of children and families.
The Front Porch Project requires a partnership between the local agency and American Humane. Each has key duties and responsibilities that will ensure successful outcomes of the project. American Humane will provide all the materials (e.g., fund development ideas and resources, project management tools, training curricula, handouts, logistic training forms, power point presentations, transparencies), as well as technical assistance in planning for and administering the project. American Humane will deliver all four days of the training and gather data to evaluate the project. The local partner will administer the project and be responsible for the following tasks and activities:
After the trainings, American Humane will be available to provide technical assistance to the agency as it undertakes its role as local participant contact.
