FUM is amazing! If there is anything you need you can go there and they are able to help...or know who you need to contact for help. Do they just pass you off? NO! They will make sure to help you reach the right person and the right resource. They truly care about each and every person in the community...and they care about the community. They talk the talk but more importantly they walk the walk and will walk beside you to help you get the hand up you need to make a difference in your life!

I worked with FUM on the 2015 Duck Derby. I had a great time at the tagging party and got go work with some awesome people. They do a lot for the community and I am excited to volunteer with them again in the future.
