Our Message

Answering Christ's Call

FOCUS engages people in Christ’s call to serve by providing opportunities and resources designed to support communities in need, right here in SoCal.

Our Vision & Approach

Overview of Focus SOCAL

As one of FOCUS North America’s largest centers, FOCUS SoCal gives people experiencing poverty, hunger, and homelessness in our community access to life sustaining resources, like food, clothing, diapers, personal hygiene products, and essential home items. Through sharing the transformative love of Christ and uniting people in compassionate service, FOCUS SoCal helps struggling individuals and families to combat the challenges of systemic poverty and achieve stability and prosperity.

Our Purpose


With current benefits decreasing to CalFresh program participants since May 2023, along with the endless rising inflation, the vulnerable population in Southern California continues to grow. FOCUS SoCal will continue hosting its distribution programs. And with additional funding, employees, and volunteers, FOCUS SoCal can further expand its reach into other vulnerable areas in Southern California not presently being serviced by FOCUS SoCal, including San Bernardino, Riverside, and Inglewood.
