Porter County Community Foundation

At the Porter County Community Foundation

we put the power to do good in your hands. Together we build a stronger Porter County.



The Need: Porter County has hundreds of homeless people and nearly one in three are children. Risk factors, such as poverty and “doubling up” continue to rise, yet the supply of affordable housing isn’t keeping pace with the demand. The Foundation has partnered with other organizations to study local homelessness and find long-term solutions.

The Solutions: The Foundation supports organizations that improve shelter options for local residents, provide low-income housing, improve the safety of existing homes, and offer training to help transition people to stable living.
