Because so many of those they serve are especially vulnerable to COVID-19, the FOCUS staff has shifted all of their programming and support away from in-person activities for the time being. They are providing daily activities adapted for children with special needs to do with their families. FOCUS began in 1983 when two medically fragile children shared a hospital room. These children had no specific diagnosis, and the parents could not find a support group. They became friends after that hospitalization, and, in each other, found comfort, information, and hope. Together, they founded FOCUS to help families cope with the overwhelming struggles of parenting a child with special needs. Through the years, FOCUS has grown to offer comfort and hope to parents and fun programs for children with disabilities. FOCUS reaches almost 3,000 families in metro Atlanta and surrounding areas.
