On Saturday, August 27th the City of Evanston honored Family Focus Youth Leader, JoAnn Avery, by naming part of Simpson Street JoAnn Avery Way, in celebration of her 40 years of service to Evanston’s children and youth. Evanston Council Member Bobby Burns represented the city in bestowing the honor. “It was a very emotional day for me,” Miss JoAnn reflected. “It was surreal. I’ve been here a long time. But this, this was never, ever in my wildest dreams.”

Why Family Focus
Family Focus is about not giving up. That’s something anyone can say, but the way that Family Focus staff said it and showed us, the way they expressed it, we knew they wanted us to achieve. That feeling is irreplaceable. If it weren’t for Family Focus, I would not be where I am today.
