Research shows that prolonged exposure to violence and trauma can seriously undermine a child's ability to learn, form relationships and focus appropriately in the classroom.  Our Focusing On Children Under Stress (FOCUS) Program is designed to decrease the effects of a child's exposure to violence and trauma.  FOCUS will help children achieve academically at their highest levels despite any traumatic circumstance(s) they may have endured.
