Who are we?
provideInc is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which was established in May of 2008. Since that time, provideInc has enabled individuals, families and a wide variety of groups the opportunity to serve in meaningful ways and positively impact local and global communities.
Who's in charge?
Founder and Director, Lori Naseef, relocated to Michigan from Northern Virginia in 1990 and, since then, has dedicated her life to serving. Lori held multiple jobs prior to founding provideInc, including a role as Women's Ministries Director for Kensington Church. Since 2008, however, Lori's focus has been on introducing people to the joy of serving and doing her part to connect people who can help with people who need help through provideInc.
What we do we do?
provideInc is unique in that we are a multipurpose charitable organization. We are not focused on ONE particular cause. We are, however, firmly of the belief that ONE group of friends, ONE family, ONE person can change the world. We believe that each of us is uniquely gifted and that through our varied talents and abilities we can - and are called to - joyfully serve others. We introduce people to the joy of serving through a wide variety of hands-on projects and convey a philosophy of becoming individuals for whom serving is a central part of life.
