Organization Information

Mission Statement

FOCUS provides emotional, informational, and physical support to parents of children with disabilities or with ongoing medical needs. FOCUS families deal with a variety of developmental delays, including rare syndromes, cerebral palsy, heart problems, immune deficiencies, and neurological involvement. FOCUS provides a network of parents who share common experiences with each other. FOCUS families provide each other with a sense of community, sharing the joys and frustrations of parenting a child with extra-special needs.

Description

Just some of the ways FOCUS supports families: Extra Special Saturday Respite, Camp Hollywood summer day camp, Camp Team summer day camp, Fun family activities, Gatherings for medically fragile families, Annual education conference, Under the Stars family retreat weekends, Camp Infinity overnight camp for teens, Adapted swim team, and other adapted recreational events. We have volunteer opportunities available year-round. Please email brian@focus-ga.org for details. Volunteers must fill out an application, consent to a background check if over 18 years old, and possibly attend an orientation session for specific activities.
