About Focus: HOPE
1200 Oakman Blvd., Building B. (Central Warehouse), Detroit, MI 48238, US
Recognizing the dignity and beauty of every person, we pledge intelligent and practical action to overcome racism, poverty and injustice; and to build a metropolitan community where all people may live in freedom, harmony, trust, and affection; black and white, yellow, brown, and red, from Detroit and its suburbs, of every economic status, national origin, and religious persuasion. We join in this covenant.
Focus: HOPE is a human service organization. Founded in 1968 in the wake of the 1967 Detroit riots by Father Willam T. Cunningham (1930-1997) and co-founder Eleanor M. Josaitis (1931-2011), Focus: HOPE unites a multicultural community in common efforts to overcome injustice and build racial harmony. Over the years, Focus: HOPE has initiated practical solutions to the problems of hunger, economic disparity, inadequate education, and racial divisiveness. Answers can be found in Focus: HOPE's technology training programs, educational and corporate partnerships, and food programs.
