Come Alive Church in Portage, gave Family Focus Inc. the incredible gift of remodeling some of their family visitation rooms. The makeovers included everything from the construction of new furnishings and flooring, to the addition of new toys and games for the children. The locations with visitation rooms impacted by these improvements include Valparaiso, Merrillville, and La Porte.

“We were so honored to be able to partner with Family Focus to remodel some of their family visitation rooms,” said the project team at Come Alive Church. “We went into this project hoping to bless others, but we really blessed ourselves. Just hearing about the families coming into these facilities and being able to find peace so that they can work on their relationships makes every minute of work worth it!”

The team at Family Focus Inc. could not be more thankful and appreciative of Pastor Eliezer Fontánez and his wife Elise, as well as the hardworking Come Alive Church project team. “In my 27 years of work with Family Focus, I have never dreamed of having something like this happen for the children and families we serve. I know our employees will enjoy conducting visits in this family-friendly and beautiful environment,” said Jim Burns, Executive Director at Family Focus Inc. “I am so grateful for the love, dedication, and hard work by so many people that made this possible! I would especially like to thank our own Valerie Oliveros for sharing the mission of Family Focus with her church, which led to this project.”

Family Focus’ primary mission is to strengthen the family unit. Each of their programs falls under the umbrella of one of the following categories: crisis management, prevention, or parental education. Their management and staff all work together so that opportunities can be created for friends, neighbors, and families to have brighter futures.
