“I research and share information with individuals to help them prepare for Transitioning into their Adult Life in our community. I worry for the individuals I work with, but Front Porch Cohousing filled me with hope and gave my biggest dreams wings.”

Ms. Sarah Worthington M. Ed., Transition Coordinator – Pennsbury School District

“I’m encouraged about the work Front Porch Cohousing is doing in the community to address the critical shortage of neuro-inclusive cohousing options for adults with intellectual developmental disabilities, assuring they will never live alone or isolated.”

Jim Brexler, President & CEO – Doylestown Health Network

“With there being such a significant need for housing for people with disabilities in the Lehigh Valley, I’m thrilled to see the efforts and leadership that Front Porch Cohousing is making in creating inclusive and supportive cohousing options and opportunities.”

Seth Hoderewski, Director of Transition Services – Lehigh Valley Center for Independent Living
