Poured porch over basement

Hello, I am relatively green to home repair, although fairly handy. 

I have a block/brick home built in 1950 that has poured slab porches front and rear that have basement underneath. The years have not been kind to the slabs,  as cracks have developed and some material has broken away on the underside to expose a steel beams inside. I am trying to deterrmine if the slabs are repairable, or we have to remove them and replace.

Nobody I have spoken to thus far is really too familiar with this style of poured porch over basement, so I haven't been able to get much direction. 


Any advice would be appreciated. I will try to upload a few pics later.
