Who We Are

FOCUS (Families of Children under Stress, Inc.) was founded in 1983 by parents seeking support for themselves and for their children with rare genetic illnesses. We quickly grew from a small living-room support group into an organization with innovative programs for both parents and their children with disabilities. After 38 years of growth, our organization now provides services for more than 4,500 Georgia families (16,000+ individuals).

Who Do We Help

FOCUS serves families of children with disabilities. Our programs are geared to provide comfort, hope, and fun to both children with disabilities and their families as well as provide medically necessary equipment to children. Children participating in FOCUS activities range in age from birth through 29 years old and have many types of developmental disabilities, including rare genetic syndromes, cerebral palsy, autism, and Down syndrome.
