Family Oriented Concept United to Serve (FOCUS)
Through collaboration and collective partnership, members of the faith-based community have joined social service providers to tackle persistent and plaguing issues that face many communities: homelessness, hunger, unemployment, and addiction, to name a few. The goal of FOCUS is to foster improved communication, build relationships, maximize resources, and create efficiencies aimed at strengthening communities.
