These amazing kids attend a school in East Detroit. They are just two of the hundreds of children who receive FOCUS meals for the weekend. 60% of children in Detroit live below the poverty line and don’t have access to proper nutrition. FOCUS works with schools around Detroit, and the country to help end childhood hunger by providing meals to students when they don’t have access to meals outside of the school week. FOCUS is building success by providing nutrition as the foundation to strong minds and bodies. #liveorthodoxy #focusnorthamerica #nutrition #nonprofit #academics #endpoverty #service #orthodoxy #detroit

With grateful hearts, we ask you for your prayers and support for the YES ministry. We hope to host at least 25 trips, and to double the number of students we are able to train up as service leaders. With your help, we will be able to provide scholarships for youth that are not able to afford the YES weekend trip registration fee of $150, and grow our new College Day and Family Day programs. Your gifts will also make it possible for us to meet the needs of the people we serve all over North America. The greatest gift you can give the YES Program is to spread the word about this vital ministry.
