CEO and Co-Founder, Focus: HOPE, is one of metro Detroit's most beloved community activists.
A suburban homemaker in 1968, she co-founded Focus: HOPE with the late Father William Cunningham.
Focus: HOPE is a nonprofit dedicated to "intelligent and practical action to overcome racism, poverty and injustice."
The organization started out with a food distribution program, then conducted groundbreaking studies proving supermarket
chains were charging far more in the city and using their city stores to dump expired food from suburban stores.
Focus: HOPE got into job training in 1981 and today trains thousands of Detroiters for modern technological careers
