At FOCUS, our mission is to embrace and equip families of children with disabilities to make everyday life better.
What We Do
Forty years ago, Atlanta parents of children with multiple disabilities had no place to turn for reassurance and support. Two families formed Families of Children under Stress, Inc., a nonprofit that provided support groups and hospital visits. After 35 years of growth and two mergers, the organization, now known as FOCUS, provides a host of critical resources for 4,500 families including community support groups, hospital visits, parent training, accessible camps and activities, and medical equipment.
