Focus Manor Apartments Opening Soon

  Focus Manor is located at 
Hwy 397/Jones Avenue
 The executive board of Focus Manor Inc., established January 2014, is seeking applications for potentials residents to live in the facility currently being constructed which will be completed in May of 2015.

The facility will be a positive addition to the Winston County Community. It is one of a kind in the county. Dr. George A. Miller secured the $1.8 million grant from the last of its kind funded by HUD of Washington, DC. Dr. Miller, pastor of Faith Tabernacle Church, 401 Pontotoc Street Louisville, MS, is also the Executive Director of Focus Manor. According to Dr. Miller, “It was God who gave the vision and God is the one who gives the increase. Even though this journey is a journey of Faith, it has not been easy and now Focus Manor is near the finish line.”

There are 14 large one bedroom apartments, with an office and a meeting room. There is a two bedroom apartment for an onsite manager. The purpose of the newly constructed facility is to provide a safe and secure residence for individuals with a certified physically handicapped condition. Individuals living in the facility will be low income and not having the financial resources to obtain their own living location. Tenants will be assisted in services from Golden Triangle, which will include meals on wheels, the Department of Human Services and other community service organizations.
