Letter From CEO



Focus Point, Incorporated, located at 102 N. Yates Street in Gastonia, N.C., is a mental health agency committed to providing high-quality effective treatment, rehabilitation, advocacy and support for recovery, enhancement and improvement in the quality of life for those that we serve.  Focus Point, Incorporated has many services to offer such as Residential Treatment-level III, Community Support-Child, Intensive In-Home Services, Parenting Classes, Individual and Family Therapy - just to name a few.

My first experience working in the Mental Health field was as a part-time, weekend residential youth counselor.  During this time, I enjoyed the idea of working in the mental health field with disadvantaged youth.  My work with youth in the group homes was an eye-opening experience to the experiences that some youth have to endure at such an early stage in their lives, which often led to their residential placement.  It was at this time that I realized that our youth and adults, if provided the right opportunities and guidance, would be able to become productive, contributing members the greater society as a whole.  It was both my passion and compassion that led to the framework for what is now Focus Point Incorporated.

Focus Point Inc. began in August of 2003, as an emergency, temporary placement service for youth from Salisbury (Rowan County) Department of Social Services.  After success as a temporary and emergency placement agency, Focus Point, Incorporated was granted long-term placement status and, subsequently, a contract with Pathways Local Management Entity - taking in our first client in October 2003.

I am very proud of Focus Point, Incorporated and all that we have to offer to the community.  My goal and vision is for Focus Point, Incorporated to become a comprehensive provider in the healing, helping and progress of our community at large. 

Thank you for choosing Focus Point, Incorporated, where we are “Focusing on Your Needs and Exceeding Your Expectations.”
