As the Chief of Police for the Lake Orion Police Department, I have had the opportunity to see the impact ProvideInc makes in our community, and wherever the need exists. From a blanket drive to assist those in need after the Tsunami in Japan, to helping the LOPD provide Christmas shopping trips to needy Lake Orion Families, Provideinc is the first to step to the plate, and always hits a homerun. I am proud to have them on our team in Lake Orion ! Jerry L. Narsh, Chief of Police, LOPD

I have know Lori her entire life. She has a very kind and giving heart especially when it comes to helping anyone! This has been exemplified in her own family with the way she has involved and instilled these same values to all of her children as well.
How she accomplishes all she does pretty much says it all. She has GIVEN Providinc her ALL and it shows. I wish I lived closer so i could help her.
You and your family certainly deserve alot of recognition for all you have done for those in this country and all over the world...

What Provide and Lori do for others and the community is beyond measure. She truly does make a difference through mentoring and giving back. I'm happy to have had the opportunity to volunteer through some of Provides many charitable activities.

My family and especially my daughter has worked with provideInc over the past three years. I am always amazed at how much good work Lori and ProvideInc does with resources she has. From working at Gleaners a local food bank to packing care packages for our soldiers, collecting soccer balls, toiletries, backpacks, new or gently used bras all to donate to help the needy. ProvideInc helps both local and far wherever there is a need. This is truly a charity that makes a difference.

It's been an honor to serve on the board of Provideinc. And as a local pastor it has been a joy to see this organization bring people from various denominations together for a common purpose with various creative and unique expressions.

I have had the pleasure of working with Lori and Steve this last year and have been awed by all the things that Provide Inc is involved with. Not only do they help the local community they expand their outreach to include other countries as well. Lori and Steve exude a love of helping others and it shows in their passion to help others. I have enjoyed working with them and will continue to in the future. They are a wonderful asset to the community!!

We are privileged to work with Providence Inc and Lori Naseef. We know that the contributions go to great causes, that we strongly believe in as a family. It has also helped opened my teenage daughters eyes to many local and global issues. This non-profit organization is making a difference one small step at a time.

Provideinc has done so much in the community and abroad. We have been privileged to be a part of their various missions: feeding the hungry, clothing the homeless, helping those who have escaped from domestic violence and praying for peace just a few things that have been done over the years. We encourage others to take part in supporting Provideinc thru service, prayers and donations. Our family is excited to be able to continue to work with them and share their service. This is teaching our children the importance of sharing, caring, empathy, responsibility and love. It is so important to spend time doing for others and being truly grateful for all that you have.

I am pretty particular who I support and who I give money to, if I am being honest. ProvideInc., is very different from other local, grass roots non-profit organizations. First of all, the diretor is a woman of honesty and integrity. Her yes is a yes, and her no is usually a "let me see how we can help in the future".
What started as a way to help teach a young group of girls how to serve their local community, has blossomed into a larger organization that partners with a diverse group of folks who are trying to better their community or bless those around them in the name of Jesus. What Lori and her every growing team do to support others - inspires me. Through them, I have been a part of serving the greater community where needs exist, that I never knew were there. It is my joy to support ProvideInc.

I have worked with Provide Inc. on more than one occasion and all my experiences have been fantastic. The company truly does whatever they can to help people and does so in some pretty unique ways. I appreciate what they do in our local community and world wide. Provide is very quick to work with other organizations and groups in order to put together the best plan of action and assist the needy. Overall, my experiences with Provide Inc have exceeded my expectations.

For my senior Capstone project at Oakland University I donated 70 community service hours to a non-profit organization of my choice. I was able to help Lori, the president of ProvideInc with anything she needed assistance with. Her passion was honorable and I admire her work in the community so much. I look up to her and have continued working with her throughout the year. Provide is a great tool for students to use in high school to gain community service hours, there is a variety of projects they gear their focus on, and anyone is encouraged to help in any way possible. I have watched Provide be built from the basement of a home moving quickly into their own building space. It is incredible what they do and where they have come. I can only hope they continue to grow as an organization.

ProvideInc was birthed in the home of my friend Lori Naseef. She saw various needs in the community and the world on one hand. She saw various groups and individuals who wanted to make a difference, but could not figure out how to connect to make any significant impact on the other. ProvideInc matches the one hand with the other: local volunteers with local and/or global projects. A donation as small as dollar makes a huge impact on the life of real people (or animals) in need when matched with a project and team of volunteers who can donate some time and or donation dollars. ProvideInc operated out of a basement for years so that every dollar donated could be used to help volunteers work on their projects: clothing for the needy, simple necessities/treats to support our military personnel, assistance for animal shelters. The list has grown as the volunteers have described their vision and Lori has crafted and guided their projects to success. More people can make more impact through ProvideInc. I think this charity could and should be replicated in every community!

Being involved in Provide Inc has been a blessing in my life. I first started collecting items for the various wish lists and then became involved with the stockings for soldiers project. I have met some wonderful people, including the founder, Lori Naseef. I love how she involves teens in the projects, thereby hopefully inspiring them to volunteer during their lives. Some volunteering I have done gets old -- you get burned out by doing the same thing over and over again. With Provide, there is always a variety of choices.

Thank you Provide Inc. for meeting the needs of so many people and agencies! Provide Inc. has established themselves as a reliable non profit agency in our community and I highly recommend them to others in need. I love how they knit the community together and invite us to join in their efforts to collect, assemble, and distribute to those in need. Any age volunteer is affirmed in their effort to reach out a hand of hope and nothing is wasted. I also appreciate the regular updates regarding the ministry and the impact they experience. May God continue to bless the works of your hands and prosper you in every way. Penny Shults, Orion Township Clerk and supporter of Provide Inc.

Provide Inc has been a real blessing to my mission teams to Haiti, over the past couple years. They have blessed us with soccer balls, baby formula, new dresses, soccer uniforms, and other miscellaneous items that we have been able to share with the Haitian people. I usually take teams of 15-20 people, and Provide Inc is always there to lend a hand with meeting the needs of our teams. They lighten our burden and enable us to bless the children of Haiti. I always have so many things to take care of before we go, so Provide Inc's role collecting necessary supplies is a great relief.

As a business in the greater Detroit area, choosing ProvideInc to partner up with was an easy decision. Lori and her staff come up with the most cereative ways to help those in need and work closely with the young people in the community to get it done. They tell you right up front what their mission and goals are and they follow through. BIG TIME. Q3AM will always suport the efforts of this wonderful non profit.

Provide, Inc. is a wonderful nonprofit that touches so many areas. From making stockings to collecting soccerballs to helping animal shelters, their help is far reaching. This diversity makes it unique in my mind. I also love how they encourage our youth to get involved. Each newslettter highlights what their current projects and programs are and just how we can get involved, either by a dontation or by hands on help. They truly provide assistance for so many and provide service opportunities. I am happy to be a donor and see exactly how I am helping.

Provideinc is a wonderful non-profit. It reaches so many different people in so many different ways. They assist so many different groups both in the US and internationally. Lori and Seve Naseef put so much of themselves into this organization and it is a huge success. I have worked with them for about 3 years on various projects and it amazes me how they reach so many different people, from the inner cities, soldiers, Haiti, and people in need all over the world. I have been able to also get my children and youth groups involved with several different projects with provide inc as well. Provide Inc is a wonderful nonprofit and deserves to be listed on the Top Rated Non profit list.

ProvideInc helps those in need both near and far. Our local homeless community benefits, those who serve our country within the military benefit and even those in distant countries such as Brazil benefit. There are so many different ways to help within this charity that giving is made as easy as possible through either donations of materials, money or time. Lori Naseef's commitment to make a difference exemplifies how one person can indeed "Be the change you wish to see in the world."

We are a non-profit that serves the homeless in a major city in Michigan. ProvideInc. has been very beneficial in helping to provide us with some of the basic needs we have in order to better serve our clients. They have collected and put together Hygiene kits, Easter Baskets, blankets, hats, gloves, socks, and scarves. They take the time to not only provide us with hygiene items they go the extra step and put the hygiene kits together. Their help us lifted a huge burden from our shoulders.
