Every month, Focus: HOPE provides regular food assistance to 5,000 mothers and children and 37,000 senior citizens across southeast Michigan. This means that since 1971 the organization has donated more than 501 million meals to ensure all community members have access to food. To do this, volunteers work alongside staff at four food centers, where people experiencing hunger can shop for nutritious items and produce for free. At Focus: HOPE’s central warehouse, meanwhile, volunteers assemble boxes of food to distribute to homebound seniors. And during the holidays, Focus: HOPE also distributes a special package of holiday food to the seniors in its program.
Yet Focus: HOPE isn't only focused on hunger. The center also aims to end the cycle of poverty through educational programming and career preparation. Since it began down this path in 1981, the organization has empowered nearly 12,000 people to obtain successful, satisfying careers while assisting high-school students in STEM courses and boosting the literacy rate of younger children.
