What is FOCUS?

Fellowship of Orthodox Christians United to Serve (FOCUS) West Central PA is a ministry of FOCUS North America. FOCUS is a national movement of Orthodox Christians. United in faith, we provide action-oriented and sustainable solutions to poverty in communities across America. We do this namely by providing feeding programs and emergency supplies to the homeless and working poor.

Why We Are Here

FOCUS West Central PA helps the poor and needy in our local community. Above all, we bring God’s people together in hands-on service initiatives – uniting giver and the under-served. As a result, we hope to break the cycle of poverty that afflicts so many in our society. Our programs are impact- and metric-driven, designed to transform the lives of our brothers and sisters in Christ in a sustainable way.

We minister to communities specifically in Beaver and Lawrence counties. We provide services without discrimination of any kind. FOCUS does not require any faith commitment from anyone we help. And you do not have to be an Orthodox Christian to volunteer with us! We exist, indeed, only to unite Christians toward a common goal. We hope to transform the lives of the homeless and poor, by providing food, occupation, clothing, understanding and shelter.
