Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.

This is one of the most important non-profit organizations in Detroit. The work they do is amazing, and they have great impact on the lives Detroit residents living on the margins of society.
