Our Front Porch’s Maggie Babyak was interviewed for this Denverite article.
“Our Front Porch, a Denver-based nonprofit founded four years ago, helped train the Love INC navigators. Our Front Porch was co-founded by social worker Babyak, who said caregivers can end up feeling as traumatized as those they are trying to support. Babyak urges helpers — whether family, friends, staff from insurance providers and other companies as well as from nonprofits and government agencies — to pay attention to their own needs as well and be clear about what they can and can’t do.”

I can honestly say that I have been looking forward to Maggie being full time at OFP for a long time – probably even longer than she has. I knew we needed to get to this point for a thousand different reasons, but mainly because I knew I couldn’t do it alone. As the one with the more flexible schedule for the last 2 years, I was the one who kept this ship sailing on a daily basis. Now, that is not to say the ship was moving in the right direction. It was just staying afloat.
Maggie and I have always talked daily about OFP, but it was typically me throwing out a few ideas and asking her input on what was a priority. She is a natural leader and can see the big picture way more clearly than I can. I get stuck in the weeds over the smallest details and always looked to her to put me back on course. It’s the perfect partnership. So what could possibly be difficult about us working together full time?
