Focus Development is more than a construction company, we are active members of the communities in which we live and work. While our primary goal is to build commercial properties with innovation and a focus on quality, our company has taken an active role in community initiatives that involve giving back to our community. Serving our communities is demonstrated through financial contributions, in-kind giving and employee volunteerism.
Areas of Focus
Focus Development’s commitment to community involvement encompasses three specific areas of focus, including health and human services, children, and animal service organizations.
Health and Human Services
Focus Development is dedicated to helping those who may not be able to help themselves. Our efforts support a number of humanitarian services, such as home improvement projects in lower-income neighborhoods, food drives for local food banks and more.
Many of Focus Development’s philanthropic and volunteer programs target making progress toward a brighter future for children. A few organizations we support, include:
- Friends of Joshua House Foundation, Inc.
- Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay
- Crisis Center of Tampa Bay
- SpeakUp 5K/Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation
Animal Welfare Organizations
Focus Development employees are involved in giving a voice to those who often go unheard. Our efforts support a wide range of animal service organizations, which include humane societies and rescue organizations.
Focus Volunteer Events
Focus Development was honored to volunteer for Diploma-See presented by The Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce, Junior Achievement and Hillsborough County Public Schools. Diploma-See is an educational event that provides local 8th graders personal finance skills and instills the importance of identifying education and career goals based on a student skills, interests and values. The program also demonstrates the economic benefits of staying in school. To learn more about how you can support Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay, visit http://jatampabay.org/.
The Focus Development and Focus Property team was proud to support the Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation by participating in the SpeakUp 5K at Al Lopez Park in Tampa, FL. A portion of the proceeds from this year’s race were donated to the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay to support their Florida Healthy Transitions program, which aims to improve access to treatment and support services for youth and young adults ages 16 – 25 that either have, are experiencing symptoms, or are at risk of developing a serious mental health condition. Joined by friends and family, the Focus staff had the opportunity to participate in the race, as well as volunteer and assist with the necessary functions for setup on race day.
