About Us

Kids in Focus is a nonprofit organization dedicated to giving at-risk youth the chance to see themselves and the world in a new light, equipping them with essential life skills to make the shift from surviving to thriving.

When kids experience trauma such as poverty, homelessness, neglect, or abuse, they disconnect from the world and themselves. With the right guidance and encouragement, a camera can help switch the light in their eyes back on. Through the restorative power of photography and with the guidance of dedicated mentors, Kids in Focus opens the eyes of youth to their potential as they build the resilience needed to overcome challenges.

At the opening, I had a chance to show what I’m worth and what I’m worth doing.
