Why support Family Focus programs?
Beds for Kids
Children in some homes in your community do not have their own beds to sleep in due to conditions passed down generationally, poverty, mental health, psychological issues, or substance abuse. Family Focus Inc. is currently accepting donations for their ‘Beds for Kids’ initiative so that beds can be purchased for families that need them most.
Through donations, we can help keep families together and provide resources to parents, assisting them in creating a safe and stable environment for their children. Each bed costs $250 and includes a brand new twin memory foam mattress and platform frame. Be a part of changing the lives of families and children in your community by donating to Family Focus for Beds for Kids.
Visitation Room Sponsorship or New Construction
Family Focus homes provide a safe and nurturing environment for children to enjoy supervised visitations with their parents. Each visitation room is designed with the child in mind, making it as comfortable as possible to facilitate a positive, safe environment.
Your sponsorship includes painting, flooring, furnishings, and games & toys for one room. To thank you for your generous sponsorship, your organization will receive a press release, an in-room plaque with your company’s name and logo, social media mentions, and your logo on the Family Focus website.
The new playground at our Wheatfield location will provide countless hours of joy for many children. The playground will provide a healthy and fun outdoor environment for children during supervised visitations with their parents. Your sponsorship will allow us to purchase and install fencing and playground equipment.
To thank you for your generous donation to the construction and sponsorship of the new playground, your organization will receive a press release, an in-room plaque with your company’s name and logo, social media mentions, and your logo on the Family Focus website.
It can be difficult for some of the families participating in our programs to provide the essential items that their children need. the mobile Baby Boutique serves our families that are experiencing poverty or homelessness by offering products for children ages 0-18 months.
Items available include but are not limited to: diapers, baby bottles/cups, household items such as cribs, bedding, high chairs, etc., gift certificates for groceries, and gas. Parents will have the option to choose which items that feel best fit their child’s needs. Mothers will also have the opportunity to pick from self-care items from Baby Boutique points they earn from attending classes and completing programs.
The sponsorship will stock the Baby Boutique and covers costs associated with travel between locations. To thank you for your generous sponsorship, your organization will have your company name as part of the boutique’s name (renewable annually with first right of refusal), a plaque at the boutique with your name and logo, your logo on the Family Focus website, a press release, a newsletter article, and social media mentions.
