Porch Light

Porchlight is a new non-profit that works on consolidating a lot of different gov’t and non-profit activity under one roof. The best example I can think of is if you had a lady with an abusive husband. Currently, she’d have to go to the police to file a report, then would have to find a women’s shelter, would need to figure out transport for herself and kids (which is another location with JeffCo), perhaps a change in school (another location, yet again), how to register for different gov’t benefits, so on and so on. The challenge there is that she’s got to find the time to do all of this while completely upending her life at the same time. Porchlight is a joint gov’t/non-profit endeavor started by the outgoing DA for JeffCo.
