Front Porch Forum (FPF) was created in 2006 in Burlington to provide a simple way to strengthen neighborhood connections. People use the service to find plumbers, report car break-ins, give away strollers, rally volunteers for pie suppers, trade equipment, and describe wildlife sightings. Topics may also include school budget debates and supporting a terminally ill neighbor, all discussed with a civil and constructive tone. It’s all locally driven as every posting comes from a clearly identified nearby neighbor.
The e-Vermont communities are joining a network of online neighborhood forums that already includes over 40 Vermont towns and 23,000 subscribing households. It’s no wonder that Front Porch Forum is winning national accolades for its community building innovations.

Why join Front Porch Forum?
In this era of busyness and individual isolation, where it’s hard to find volunteers for local committees and people increasingly don’t know their neighbors, Front Porch Forum helps people meet those around them, find new homes for old treasures, and talk about issues.
