Formed in 1969 to focus on the needs of the community, Focus On Renewal (FOR) has been the place to turn for healthcare, economic and social service needs in the Sto-Rox community for more than 40 years. Started as a small storefront anti-poverty program, FOR has grown in size and service capabilities and stature in the community and is today a comprehensive community social service organization that helps more than 15,000 economically disadvantaged individuals and families annually.

We invite you to learn more about our outreach efforts, explore ways you can get involved to make a difference in the lives of other and to strengthen our mission.
