ANTIOCHIAN WOMEN ACTS OF MERCY + FOCUS NORTH AMERICA
TOGETHER WE FOCUS ON LOVE
More than 11 million children in the United States Live in food insecure homes. “Food Insecure” means not every member of the household has enough food to live a healthy life. Children are often the hidden victims of food insecurity – and miss important educational and health benchmarks when they don’t get the healthy food they need. Join FOCUS in fighting hunger and food insecurity by making a gift or organizing a fundraiser at your parish to support our programs.
Imagine missing school because you don’t have a backpack or even a pair of shoes. For many children experiencing homelessness and poverty in America, they don’t need to imagine. They are forced to skip school, unable to participate in sports and playground activities, and face health risks because of inadequate shoes, food, or school supplies.
FOCUS will send you brand-new, high quality backpacks with a list of school supplies. Fill the backpacks with the supplies and then donate them to a FOCUS partner school in your area. Click below to contact our Program Manager and get started.
As we navigate a changing world, creative solutions to social problems are needed now more than ever. Everywhere FOCUS serves, we do our best to meet the needs of our neighbors while finding compassionate solutions that prioritize human dignity. Every human face we encounter is a living icon, a window through which we can see the image and likeness of Christ. Some of our recent programs provide online music tutoring for children, virtual leadership retreats for teens and young adults, and more!
