Mission:
MISSION STATEMENT

To provide a relaxing atmosphere promoting room for change.
Our Mission and Purpose is to provide relief to the poor, underprivileged, distressed and depressed with a focus on the homeless.
To ease neighborhood tensions along with combating community deterioration, over all community delinquency, with a focus on the business community by removing our “friends in need” from the community as a tension force and
“setting them free” as a viable, positive contributing force as a changed, new person via their own strengths, their peers’ assistance and our assistance.

To be creative in our approach to the issues.

Having the ultimate goal of assisting our “friends in need” out of the Chronic Assistance Cycle and self reliant.

Results:
We have spent a great deal of time, energies and money helping homeless, formerly homeless and preventing single mother families of more the 4 to stay off the steets this year. We continue to work hard to keep our Friends In Need moving Straight Ahead in order to get off the streets and to prevent from going to the streets.
