Donate and Volunteer to Overcome Racism, Poverty, and Injustice in Detroit with Focus: HOPE

Donation and volunteer sign-up drive for Focus: HOPE

  • Focus: HOPE is a nondenominational 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Detroit, Michigan dedicated to overcoming racism, poverty, and injustice through intelligent and practical action. One of the longest-serving organizations of its kind, it was founded in 1968 with a study that demonstrated city residents paid more for food and prescriptions than suburban residents.

  • Support Focus: HOPE’s crisis response efforts by making a donation or signing up for volunteer opportunities. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Focus: HOPE is continuing its Food for Seniors, Early Learning & Youth Development, and Workforce Development programs.
