FOCUS offers personalized guidance for families and individuals who experience
special needs through therapies, encouragement, resources and education.


"It has been a pleasure working with FOCUS families. The opportunity to provide care for clients through respectful and careful service has been a valuable experience and duty, one of which I hold highly and will throughout my life's journey. Working with these families has given me so much insight into personal wealth and value, something that is truly distinct."

"Thanks to focus! Danielle has made leaps and
bounds of improvement with [my son], Especially
the social interaction he has with people.He just
adores her and loves to come see her. Andrea
does an amazing job; I wish I could bottle her up
and take her everywhere! Thank you to your amazing staff, we wouldn’t be where we are today without you."

“Your summer camp, without exception, employs the most dedicated, caring & skilled staff. My son has had the opportunity to experience lots of different programs delivered by numerous agencies and the Summer Camp of FOCUS has been and is now the best. Hands down the best! Thank you for making it possible for my son to attend this summer.”
