Target demographics: IN SUPPORT OF SPECIAL CHILDREN AND SCHOOL ATHLETIC PROGRAMS

Direct beneficiaries per year: 270 children , as we provided dinners to breakfast to snacks at many athletics meets. We made sure our athletes as children had good shoes and safe gear to compete. We gave them more than supplies but stood by each and one of our kids(our children) side by side. Never did an athlete,child ever have to worry if they would have a meal, to shoes to water and most importantly, someone there to support them every step and heat, to fall to injury, WE ARE THERE!!! FOR OUR CHILDREN I STAND.!

Programs: Our time to give back! from showing moral, spiritual support and beyond. Our children need us, whether they are related by blood or not. Someone once said, "blood is thicker than water" yes, famous quote. well ummm, wrong! Its not! We as a whole can see beyond all, and provide those that need A shoulder or a mentor to just being a supporter to what their goals are and dreams as children. Children that lean on us. Filling a bag of items, such as clothing, athletic shoes, track shoes, cleats, basketball gear and much more!!! Open Arms and Open hearts , giving our children a memorable time, opportunity and showing how much we all are there. Showing that even someone from afar is capable of loving and caring in more ways than one. That is F.O.C.I.S..... THAT IS US, AS A WHOLE.

FOCIS is a tremendous organization that helps children of all ages reach and achieve goals that even they themselves may have not thought possible. As a teacher and coach I deal with kids every day that don't always have the means to achieve success and, through FOCIS, they are able to reach their full ptential.

The organization help out by providing food and clothing. I haven't known about the organization long but when I found out about it , it accepted me and did not turn me away. It has helped me and my family through hard times that we may have not gotten through without them. I love everything they have done for me and more families. I wouldn't change a thing about anything they do.

Ms.vanessa or mama Nessa as we call her has done so much for me from the time I first met her. She's opened her home up to all the kids she helps and makes sure everyone is okay I haven't met anyone else who genuinely cares about kids and their well being so much. For instance basically the whole school year mama Nessa provided me a ride so I didn't have to ride the bus to school. She gifted all the kids she cares for Christmas gifts and she even threw me a joint surprise party with her daughter! Mama Nessa is just a blessing from above she's provided a second home for me and also another motherly figure I can't express how much love I have for this sweet women and her family without them things just wouldn't be the same. She does these things from the bottom of her heart and seeing us happy makes her happy and we love her for that.
