Purpose-Driven Engagement


At the foundation of Community 3.0 is the concept of individual and community well-being. Our goal as a society must be to improve the human condition of all our fellow citizens, no matter what their socioeconomic level. The Front Porch network orbits around this.


Community Solutions

Each business or Front Porch will sponsor community Solutions as part of their involvement in the Community 3.0 network. These Solutions are designed to fix the problems and take advantage of the opportunities in your community that too often are left unaddressed by our traditional institutions. They can range from organizing a cleanup effort, to fixing a playground, to even spearheading a high school mentoring or apprentice program. By being a 3.0 Member, you can become involved with whatever Solution fits your strengths and fits your desires. Community 3.0 transforms our businesses into ones that you would be ashamed NOT to do business with … something no box store or chain store can compete with.

These Front Porch based Solutions will work hand-in-hand with the Community 3.0 philosophy of engagement being at root of the remedy to our society’s ills and opportunities. Through involvement in these volunteer activities, petty ideological divides can be bridged and ignorance of those different of us will be replaced by empathy. It’s hard to be working next to someone with a common goal – say restoring the school grounds where both your kids go … and not feel a kinship that transcends politics originating 2000 miles away in Washington D.C.

Common threads that will be highlighted throughout these Solutions are environmental restoration and climate change intervention and how they can impact our health both today and in the future. While national and even international government action (or inaction) receives all the attention – it’s here in our communities where the real change must happen. The 3.0 Front Porch network must lead the efforts directly, and indirectly through pressure on those we elect to positions of traditional institutional power.
