The Hayden Porter Foundation is a non-profit organization in Stark County that was founded following the youth suicides in the Perry School District in 2018

The organization is hosting a co-ed softball tournament this weekend to raises funds to continue their efforts to develop solutions and offer support for the prevention of suicide.

The organization works with schools and communities to provide strategies and resources to empower students to address issues related to suicide, develop solutions, and support peers dealing with suicidal thoughts or have been impacted by suicide.
