Focus Forward’s mission is to¬†create pathways to success for youth in the Juvenile and/or Child Welfare systems through effective programs and services.


We work consistently to operate as a transparent Community Benefit Organization in Fresno County. In fact, our monthly Board Meetings are open to the public. Always feel free to contact us for further information (559) 600-4961.

Our Specialization

Our organization is unique in that it has no peer in the Fresno community. We were created to fill a niche to bring much needed services to the juvenile justice youth and youth in foster care. Our infrastructure is built into the Probation Department both programmatically and physically, and it is a functioning model of a truly public/private partnership.

Our Objective

The objective of the Focus Forward programs is to equip youth with tools for success, thereby reducing recidivism, decreasing the social and monetary costs of incarceration, building healthier communities, and above all providing a fresh start in life for the participants.
