FOCUS North America

Purpose, Mission & Vision


The Fellowship of Orthodox Christians United to Serve exists to support the growth of Orthodox Christian service efforts by providing engagement opportunities that reveal Christ in our neighbor and serve community needs within our five ministry areas of Food, Occupation, Clothing, Understanding, and Shelter.


FOCUS engages people in Christ’s call to serve by providing opportunities and resources designed to support communities in need.


We envision world where everyone experiences and shares the transformative love of Christ.

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 help. We exist solely to transform the lives of the homeless and poor in America, moving them from dependency to self-sufficiency, by providing food, occupation, clothing, understanding and shelter.
