Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Front Porch Coalition was created after an informal meeting on March 2, 2001 in Rapid City of more than 50 people who wanted to do something about the problem of suicide. Today, the Coalition is a leader locally, statewide, and nationally in a movement that is gaining momentum in preventing suicide, one community at a time, one person at a time. It is the only agency in Western South Dakota solely devoted to suicide prevention.
The Coalition’s work has been central to bringing the prevalence of suicide-the 2nd leading cause of death of people ages 15-34 and tragically the #1 leading cause of death among our young people ages 12-22. It is also the 9th leading cause of death of people all ages in South Dakota to the attention of the public, community leaders, and lawmakers.
