Our History

Our History

In 2008 The Porch was founded through the ministry of Washington Community Fellowship Church, also known as the "home" of The Porch. In 2010 we became a ministry of Care Company, a 501c3 organization that demonstrates God's love and justice in practical ways to those struggling with poverty in DC. In 2012 former Affiliate Director, Christina Fowler, began connecting with Don Talley, Youth for Christ Vice President of Ministry Expansion. Two years later, in October of 2014, we became a Mission Affilate of Youth for Christ (YFC). This allowed us to receive resources and training that helped increase our ministry effectiveness.

On January 1st 2016, The Porch became a ministry of Youth for Christ USA. This exciting move was not just a shift in non-profit status but a strategic decison to unite with a long-standing youth ministry that provides structure and resources needed to maintain and muliply our ministry presence in DC so that more youth are transformed by the life-changing love of Jesus.
