The Caring Neighbor Foundation (CNF) is the cooperative effort of caring neighbors to alleviate the suffering of fellow neighbors who are experiencing hard times. Caring is the fertile soil from which our community grows and prospers. No one directly involved in the CNF receives any compensation other than what comes from caring for one another and for neighbors who are hurting.

Care and Share

Although the Caring Neighbor Foundation began in Michigan, its arena of growth is the world because neighbors include everyone and the needs of each are the same: decent food, shelter, clothing, education, health care and especially the need to be treated with worth and dignity.

Our primary goal is connecting neighbor with neighbor to open up new worlds of life as a life in isolation withers like a severed branch. Caring about the neighbor is the key for connecting one neighbor with another. For this reason the Foundation has become involved in a wide range of caring initiatives. These include: education of youth regarding the need for caring, sheltering homeless individuals and families, providing meals, stocking pantries, employment counseling, medicine, domestic violence reduction programs, reduce or eliminate drug abuse among young athletes, resolution of conflict among youth, anti-bullying projects and, in general, facilitating the connection between resource and a neighbor in need.
