Mission Statement

As an expression of Christ’s love FOCUS North America serves the hungry, thirsty, stranger, naked, sick and imprisoned by providing Food, Occupation, Clothing, Understanding, and Shelter.

Why We Are Here

Through the provision of social and human development services, FOCUS North America serves those affected by homelessness and poverty in North America. We bring communities, parishes, and partners together in hands-on activities – uniting people — to help transform all of our lives and break the cycle of poverty that afflicts so many in our society.

We Do Not Discriminate

All of FOCUS North America’s services are provided without discrimination of any kind. We do not require any faith commitment from anyone we work with. We exist solely to serve others and provide opportunities in moving from dependency to self-sufficiency by providing food, occupation, clothing, understanding and shelter.
