The Jordan Porco Foundation helped me when I lost my teenage cousin to suicide. I am inspired by their mission to prevent suicide, promote mental health, and create hope for young adults, accomplishing this with their unique programs for colleges and universities. Their tagline is "We're in it for life" and they certainly are "in it for life" every day saving young adult lives, nationwide. There are student testimonials that speak to how their programs are making a huge difference. With suicide rates at their highest number in 30 years, they need support more than ever to help combat these statistics.
