September’s Featured Coronado SAFE Partner: F.O.C.U.S. (Friends of Children United Society)

Georgia Chakos Ferrell, Executive Director of Coronado SAFE, and Lauren Oppenheimer, Youth Program Development Specialist, open boxes of new supplies provided by the nonprofit’s partner F.O.C.U.S. (Friends of Children United Society).

F.O.C.U.S. (Friends of Children United Society) has partnered with Coronado SAFE to provide a tremendous donation of supplies worth $2,000. The donations will be essential for running the nonprofit’s signature Youth Programs at local schools this year.

From the fun to the practical, these supplies will be used in the best of ways to encourage and educate the participants of Coronado SAFE’s classroom programs (such as Turtle Time), in-school support groups, and individual and family counseling sessions. 

More information can be found on the Coronado SAFE website’s blog about how the F.O.C.U.S. donation has helped prepare the nonprofit for what is sure to be an impressive Turtle Time program throughout the school year.
