About Me

Young Fathers Standing United (YFSU) is a 501c3 nonprofit that develops at-risk fathers under the age of 25, who wish to be more engaged fathers for their children. YFSU is the vision of Quanna V. Fish, and offers support to fathers through referral services, classroom instruction, mediation and mentorship.

 

Mr. Fish founded YFSU in 2010. His inspiration is rooted in his experience growing up on Detroit’s west side in a low-income, father-absent household. Already acknowledged as a powerful moving force in the community, Mr. Fish has received local & national media attention and the following honors for his work:

 

> WXYZ-TV Channel 7 News & Detroit 20/20 "Inspire" Award (2014)

> Center for Urban Families, P.L.I. Fellow, Baltimore, MD (2014)

> City of Detroit "Spirit Award" (2013)

> Black Male Engagement Leadership Award - BMe (2013)

> Motorcity Casino “Simply the Best” Community Service Award (2016)

> Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit "Community Leadership Award" (2016)

> Fellowship Chapel, "Community Father of the Year Award" (2016)
