Goldsboro Front Porch began in 2001 and is a 501 c3 organization housed in the Goldsboro Community of Sanford, Florida. The current Chair for the Council is Turner Clayton and Vice Chair is Patrice Anderson. Goldsboro Front Porch works to help at risk youth and families within the City of Sanford, FL. Many of their programs help kids get jobs and tutoring for school, and other programs give the elderly a place to spend time with friends and make new ones while also taking part in other stimulating activity. The Goldsboro Front Porch Sanford office also works to help out the community overall with many of its programs and events.

Who We Are

Goldsboro Front Porch is made up of people dedicated to helping their community. The members of Goldsboro Front Porch have chosen to dedicate their time and energy to their community and have made noticeable strides in helping to improve it. These strides range from gathering grants for the community and working with community leaders and government agencies, to tutoring struggling high school students with their grades, to working with state college(s) to help those in the community attain their degrees, or certifications. None of these accomplishments would have been possible if it were not for current and past board members, or the work of others within the organization striving to help in whatever way they can for their community.
