Why Family Focus
Family Focus is about not giving up. That’s something anyone can say, but the way that Family Focus staff said it and showed us, the way they expressed it, we knew they wanted us to achieve. That feeling is irreplaceable. If it weren’t for Family Focus, I would not be where I am today.
