Mission Statement

To build better communities by strengthening families.

Organization History

Focus Points was founded in 1995 with a mission to build better communities by strengthening families. Since its inception, Focus Points has employed a two-generational approach, creating opportunities for and addressing the needs of both children and the adults within the family unit. Programs include: an individualized and skill-based workforce development program; economic opportunities through social enterprises and career guidance; early childhood education through home visitation and evidence-based curricula; contextualized adult education classes in English language acquisition and GED classes; one-on-one family advocacy support to assist families in setting and achieving goals on the journey to personal and family sustainability; and wellness initiatives that promote exercise, nutrition, and mental health. Furthermore, in order to address the barrier of costly childcare that many families face, Focus Points provides high-quality, on-site early childhood education programming for parents who participate in programs.

During the 2021-22 program year, Focus Points Family Resource Center will provide programs and services to over 2,500 individuals and families in the Globeville, Elyria and Swansea (GES) neighborhoods of northeast Denver. Most program participants are Spanish-speaking immigrants, members of the Latinx community, and/or resettled refugees. Additionally, Focus Points has been designated as an essential service during the COVID-19 pandemic and remains committed to providing high-quality programming to meet participants' urgent needs. Focus Points is uniquely positioned to support its participants on the path to achieving career and family goals, even in this time of crisis.
