Back to School

NEARLY 1.5 MILLION U.S. STUDENTS EXPERIENCE AN EPISODE OF HOMELESSNESS EVERY YEAR. 

These children who experience homelessness and instability are often missing what they need to succeed in school.

provide backpacks + supplies

YOU can make a real difference in the lives of children from your own community by partnering with FOCUS to sponsor a back to school fundraiser, or supply drive.

Back to School Fundraiser

You raise the money, and we'll send backpacks + school supply kits directly to children in your community who need them. We'll send you information on the impact of your fundraiser. $600 provides backpacks and supply kits for approximately one classroom (24 students).

Back to School Supply Drive

We will send you empty backpacks + a supply list from a local school/community partner in need. Collect items for each backpack, and deliver filled backpacks to your partner. $240 provides backpacks for approximately one classroom (24 students)
