Focus for Ethnic Women is a community organization that strives to support female immigrants in particular. The founding members of Focus desired to create an organization that supported the holistic nature of women’s needs, including their physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual needs. Over its 33 year history, FEW has invested in creating safe spaces for immigrant women to feel personal empowerment while enhancing their self esteem. Our programs focus on skill development, social interaction, and much more!
