Leon and Debra Brown have been a part of the Racine community for over 40 years and has been serving the community for over 10 years through the food pantry and FINAO Inc. programs. With crime and hunger rates increasing in Racine, the Browns saw a need for more programs to be established and
accessible to families that desire that one on one or intimate help. FINAO Inc is here to show Racine and it's surrounding communities that they can succeed and Failure Is Not An Option.
