Fresh Start School Graduates First Class of Students with Autism
FOCUS Alumni C.J. Jordan reflected "Before the ‘FOCUS years’ I was an ace at class assignments but had very few people that I was truly friends with.

With the help of everyone involved I made a lot of new friends and became a stronger person at the same time and it couldn't have been done without FOCUS!"
