A Pillar in the Community, Focus: Hope

Thursday, October 15, 2020 | 6:00pm - 7:00pm

This event is at capacity to view in person due to social distancing guidelines.  Please register to participate via Zoom. 


The Thursday Evening Speaker Series is Generously Presented by Stuart Jeffares - Max Broock Realtors, Thank you!  

Portia Roberson, Chief Executive Officer Ms. Roberson will discuss the nonprofit organization’s history and future as a pillar in the community. For over 50 years, Focus: HOPE has been an
anchor institution in Detroit, offering early learning, workforce development, food programs, and community engagement initiatives. Founders Father William Cunningham and Eleanor Josaitis
pledged in 1968 to unite a community that was sharply divided on racial and economic lines — and Focus: HOPE has been following in their footsteps toward that goal ever since. As CEO,
Portia is focused on continuing the mission of the organization's founders — to overcome racism, poverty and injustice through intelligent and practical action — in 2020 and beyond.
