In 1969, amidst unrest across the country, a group of concerned citizens and activists mobilized to ensure the people of Sto-Rox were being cared for, represented, and provided with equitable opportunities to thrive.
The Focus on Renewal Sto-Rox Neighborhood Corporation, or FOR for short, was born to unite the community and provide an umbrella organization for much-needed social services in the community. From early childhood education to nutrition, support groups and mental health to arts programs, FOR quickly established itself as a pillar of the community serving neighbors young and old.
Today, Focus on Renewal shares the same commitment as its founders: creating opportunities for Sto-Rox residents to live a better life by providing a range of programs and services delivered with dignity and respect.
FOR’s staff of 30, now stretched across four convenient locations, works toward fostering a healthy body, mind and spirit for everyone in the community. We always have been, and always will be, here FOR you.
