Community Connections

Focus on the Children received a generous grant from The Presbytery of Genesee Valley. This grant allowed FOTC to host programs, train volunteers, provide inservice to staff and Board of Directors, and create new and beneficial connections with local community programs and services. We hope to provide you with important updates, program announcements, and resources that may be found in your area.

Mission Day for Triple Play - April 30!

Focus on the Children will once again host volunteers from the Genesee Valley Presbytery for the Triple Play Mission Day on April 30th.  Weather permitting, we hope to provide needed outside cleaning of the Connor-Gibson House. This may include a power wash of the front porch in preparation of painting. In the case of rain, we will move our efforts inside and give the home of FOTC and Source of Success a good old fashioned Spring Cleaning!

Contact our office if you interested in joining the group - 585-538-4366. Speak with Carrie Johnson.
