WHO WE ARE

VISION

We will return the south side of Cape Girardeau to a united, hopeful community of motivated residents who prosper, support each other and live their dreams.

MISSION

We are working to help people dream again and imagine the possibilities of what their lives can be. We want to raise the standard of life, equip the community to thrive, and be a beacon of hope that stamps out poverty through economic growth, education and wellness.

What is the PORCH Initiative?

Following two years of learning, team-building and discussion, the PORCH initiative is ready to get to work ushering in a new era in the City's most infamous neighborhood. People Organized to Revitalize Community Healing (PORCH) will use the Purpose Built Community (PBC) model to fix big problems facing South Cape and build a future of opportunity for all of its residents...
