A New FOCUS Center in Cincinnati

After months of planning and fundraising, FOCUS Cincinnati has officially been established.

Following a kickoff meeting at the end of May 2023, which was attended by over fifty people, FOCUS assembled a local Exploratory Committee of two dozen local faithful to help research programs, identify a location, and begin raising funds for the new Center.  

With its official designation as a Center, FOCUS Cincinnati transitioned its Exploratory Committee to an Advisory Board who then searched for, and found, the Center’s first Director.
