Our Story

Athena McKay, FIS’s executive director, and Sharon Taylor FIS’s treasurer were originally designated as a community liaison for the FEA project. The academic research team from Michigan State University preferred the research tool be sustained by a Flint organization, thus FIS was formulated. The maintenance of the app is one component in our efforts to assist in the distribution and accessibility of community resources to create a vibrate thriving community of equity.
