Children and Families

The list of challenges faced by American families and their children is daunting and seemingly endless. FOCIS will initiate broad dialogue on matters relating to the sound development of children, youth and families to promote the economic and social well-being of families, children, individuals, and communities in an effort to achieve family and social stability and self-sufficiency. Addressing children’s health, education and development and financial literacy, and working with the Wayne State University Children’s Bridge, FOCIS will host discussions and coordinate projects that help to empower families and individuals to increase their own economic independence and productivity and build strong, healthy, supportive communities that have a positive impact on the quality of life and the development of children.
