What our clients have to say…
I was completely blown away by all the resources and extremely helpful staff you have at FOCUS! Your guidance and expertise most definitely aided me in deciding what path was right for me. FOCUS gave me the confidence to go for it!
FOCUS assisted me in my transition from being laid off into starting school. They made this transition very seamless for me. It was comforting knowing that I had their staff rooting for me to succeed. I am so happy that FOCUS exists and is so hands-on in the community. They assisted me and inspired me to start this next chapter. Thank you FOCUS – especially Jaycee, for all that you do!
Within a day of visiting FOCUS, I got a job! FOCUS is an essential service and have such great staff.
Jess was very nice and helpful with assisting me with my resume. I would strongly recommend her to other clients!
