A Prayer for FOCUS

O Heavenly King, Comforter, who grants all blessings,
we thank You for Your abundant grace and mercies.
Help us to be good stewards of Your treasury
through the ministry of FOCUS.

Help us to strip ourselves of our earthly adornment,
that the poor may be sufficiently clothed and fed.
And, by so loving our neighbor,
adorn us with the everlasting pearls of virtue instead.

Where there is suffering, help us to bring Your mercy.
Where there is despair, Your hope;
Where there is pain, You who are the Comforter;
Where there is hatred, You who are Love;

Daily guide our lives and our work in FOCUS,
So that we may do all things,
In every place and at all times,
For Your glory.

Every day, FOCUS opens its doors to people who are out of work, experiencing homelessness, or struggling to make ends meet. Every day, people turn to FOCUS for a hot meal, health care, transitional housing, clothing, groceries, job training, and compassionate support.

By making recurring monthly donations to FOCUS, you will join our “Friends of FOCUS” and help us provide reliable, consistent programs that meet these daily needs. A recurring monthly donation to FOCUS North America supports our activities and programs throughout the year. It allows us to plan and budget accordingly, enabling us to encourage, serve, and inspire thousands of families in need

Any amount is meaningful and makes a difference. Here’s a sample of what your monthly donation can accomplish:

  • $20 a month: (Food for a family of 4)
  • $35 a month: (Back to school supplies for 12 homeless children)
  • $50 a month: (One year’s subsidized rent for a graduate of our job training program)

Sign up by enrolling your credit card or debit card and designating a monthly donation amount. You can change the amount or cancel at any time.
