We create community. It’s at the heart of all we do. And by believing in every individual, we not only fulfill our mission, but we elevate each community. As a not-for-profit family of communities and partnerships, we’re united in this commitment and dedicated to meeting the needs of the people and places we serve.
Behind each community, you’ll find the Front Porch brand and culture, dedicated to doing everything Humanly Possible® to creatively meet the changing needs of the individuals we serve. We’ve created each remarkable community to be as unique as the individuals who live there.
Through partnerships, we share our commitment to excellence and our emphasis on mutual growth. CARING Housing Ministries, a division of Front Porch, creates and manages affordable housing communities in partnership with like-minded organizations to meet the needs of individuals and families with exceptional challenges.
The power of
We’re better together.
Collaboration has always been in our DNA—from the technology creators and partners who help power the Front Porch Center for Innovation and Wellbeing to our philanthropic social ministry partners and the creative, capable staff who support the Front Porch vision of doing everything Humanly Possible® for our residents.
These are the connections that enable us to create, nurture, and sustain our communities, and further enrich our residents’ lives and the Front Porch communities they call home.
The spirit of the individual.
The strength of community.
Our residents are one-of-a-kind, so our retirement communities are too—from sunny San Diego to Sunny View in Cupertino, and all the spectacular locations in-between. Each unique place celebrates the spirit of the individual and the strength of community. Whether it’s overlooking the waves or steps from a bustling village, each Front Porch senior living community cultivates an experience true to the setting and meaningful to the people who live there.
We do all that is Humanly Possible®.
As an expression of our commitment to the people we serve, Humanly Possible articulates our dedication to meeting needs, creating new opportunities, and forging new directions.
Humanly Possible is a call for every mind, every discipline, and every level of our organization to focus on what’s possible, what’s achievable, and what’s next. And it’s a catalyst for disruptive innovation, strategic development, and new partnership.
The gift of
It comes from the heart.
Our residents benefit from the generosity of their neighbors through the philanthropic organizations we partner with: California Lutheran Homes and Community Services, Pacific Homes Foundation, FACT Foundation, and Sunny View Foundation. Thanks to these powerful partnerships, we’re able to develop and fund innovative new programs and services for the people who live in our communities.

Our Social Accountability
Making a difference.
Of the many ways Front Porch works to improve people’s lives, not all can be measured. But for the ways in which positive outcomes can yield demonstrable results, we present our Impact Report.
Our Humanly Possible® mission inspires us to make a profound impact on the world. And we achieve this through philanthropy, outreach, and stewardship.
It is also evidenced each day in our retirement communities where we aim to make a difference in the life of every resident we serve, and every person we employ.
From finding better and more innovative ways to support individuals with memory loss, to sewing quilts for victims of national disasters, we continue to act to help people live well. With our hands and our hearts, we create the positive impact that spreads exponentially. Click on the View button to experience our interactive digital report or download a PDF version.
