Not knowing what your porch looks like, how big it is, how old it is, or what supports the frame, the best thing would be for you to find a local contractor to examine the porch and whatever it is that supports it. It sound like either the support itself has failed to some degree, or the frame itself has problems at support. It may rot, it may be masonry failure, or something else entirely. But to insure that it is repaired properly, unless you have construction experience, call the pro.
