$75,000 Challenge Grant Benefiting the Jordan Porco Foundation
Connecticut, U.S. – May 17, 2017—The Jordan Porco Foundation received their first dollar for dollar match thanks to Stephen Corman, a community leader whose “adopted daughter” Abby Anderson died by suicide in 2014, at age 15. Everyone has a story. This is Stephen Corman’s story, in honor of Abby.
“We must let young people like Abby know that they are not alone, that it is ‘ok’ to seek help,” said Corman.
This very timely challenge grant will help fund the Jordan Porco Foundation’s 4 What’s Next program, including an online creative reflection platform featuring, “My Friend Abby.”
