Examples of past FOCUS projects include:

  • Assisting homeless children’s immediate and long term needs. Focus purchased a van for one of our partners allowing them to pick up and transport homeless teens to a shelter in the evenings.
  • Partnering to provide military families essential items to aid in times of emotional or financial crisis. For 25 years, FOCUS set up story stations on-board deployed ships for parents to make story-time recordings for children back home.
  • Recognizing that SD is an international gateway city for sex trafficking, FOCUS is dedicated to helping partners with items necessary to help provide safety, comfort, therapy, education and vocational support to young women victims.
