The Focus On Renewal Sto-Rox Neighborhood Corporation, or FOR for short, was founded in 1969. FOR founders led a group of mobilized citizens and community activists against corrupt local politicians to create an umbrella organization for much needed social services now ranging from food security, nutrition, early-childhood education, support groups and mental health to arts programs for ages and small business incubation. FOR has now grown to house 30+ staff at 6 locations throughout McKees Rocks and Stowe Township. FOR aims to support the people in our community through programs for all ages aimed towards the development of healthy mind, body and spirit. We work with a wide range of partners to ensure high quality programming is accessible to all 13,000 residents of the Sto-Rox Community.
