About Us

Our team


Focus is staffed by it's founder, Mary Jost and multiple dedicated volunteers!



Focus was started in 2005, offering free pregnancy tests and support for Moms to choose life for their babies. Over the years it has grown into a busy and well- received resource for the city of Rochester community. We currently offer free pregnancy testing, early ultrasound referral and material aid for families who choose life for their babies. 



To appropriately face the reality of abortion. To respond with urgency to the immediate need to save a life. To counsel through verbal interaction, literature, and photographic images. Our mission is to provide a life-giving solution to all women & girls contemplating abortion. To help them to choose life and to supply the support & referrals that they need with love.
