FRIENDS U NEED, INC. is doing the work that others sometime do not know is necessary. I want to believe that most of the world is not apathetic to the needs of our brothers and sisters who return to our communities. The work with Returning Citicens is monumental, extremely necessary and critical to the survival of our communities and our world. FRIENDS U NEED, INC. has taken a giant step in supporting the essential needs of our family members (they are all family). Food, clothing and shelter are basic needs, however, in order to acquire these basic needs one must have a job, transportation, tools, health care, counseling and a strong support system when theuy return to a community that is not always welcoming. Thank you for the opportunituy to speak about FRIENDS U NEED, INC. and the contributions that they are making to our community. Focus: HOPE is a not for profit civil and human rights organization with a mission dedicated to celebrating diversity offering an opportunity to all who seek support to achieve their fullest potential. We offer job training, full time employment and collaboration with organizations like FRIENDS U NEED, INC. is certain to make a positive impact in our community.

Friends U Need Inc. Is a non profit ran by Tim Kane I've known Tim for a while and know him to be a helpful caring person. This non profit needs funds its not one of the sexy causes like helping puppies or cleaning ponds. What he does is help people coming home from incarceration with housing and help them find jobs to be productive in society and provide for their families. Not only does he run his own non profit but you can catch him volunteering at local soup kitchens in the Detroit area. I just wanted to give this man a shout out and help him have a chance to win some help because I know for sure he will put it to good use.

Friends U Need Inc. is a great non profit ran by Tim Kane. Helping people transition back to being productive citizens in the community. Tim believes in this cause so much that he spends his own money to help people as well as volunteering at various places all over the city. We need more people like him to help bring the city back!!
