We believe in giving back.
Our employees enjoy giving back to our community! We have participated in initiatives benefiting the following charities to name a few.
LP Pencil Box Foundation is a teacher supply store stocked with classroom essentials such as pencils, crayons, copy paper, note books, book bags, glue sticks, hand sanitizer and much more. The store exists through generous donations from national brands, the Nashville community, and PENCIL Partners.
MNPS teachers can shop twice each school year at absolutely no cost to them. Since 75% of MNPS students come from economically disadvantaged households, the LP PENCIL Box is the community's way to ensure that every student has quality supplies no matter their economic background. As donors, volunteers, teachers and PENCIL work together, thousands of students in Nashville have the tools they need for success.
In the 2016-2017 school year alone, the LP PENCIL Box gave out more than $729,000 worth of supplies to teachers from 152 different schools.

Room In The Inn provides programs that emphasize human development and recovery through education, self-help and work, centered in community and long term support for those who call the streets of Nashville home.
Room In The Inn began in the winter of 1985, when their Founding Director, Father Charles Strobel, opened the doors of his parish to individuals seeking sanctuary in the church parking lot. This simple act of kindness marked the beginning of Room In The Inn. In December 1986, four congregations committed to sheltering people experiencing homelessness through March 1987. By the end of that winter, 31 congregations had joined. Now, Room In The Inn has nearly 200 congregations from a wide variety of traditions and over 7,000 volunteers who shelter almost 1,500 men and women from November 1 through March 31 each season.

We have been working with Focus Relocation since 2005, and even after 12 years we continue to be extremely satisfied with our relationship and the services they provide. The Focus Relocation team is always professional and courteous. They have a deep knowledge of the industry which allows them to successfully support all our transferees regardless of the complexity of their move.
I wanted to take a minute and tell you that Focus Relocation has been a wonderful company to work with. They've made our move to Nashville so much easier by following up continuously both during and after the process to make sure that we had what we needed. I wanted to congratulate you on selecting a partner who's TOP notch!
I have an extensive line of sight and work experience with the leadership and team members of Focus Relocation that spans at least 10 years. I have enjoyed many successful experiences with this team. During a recent group move, we were very intentional in our selection of the Focus Relocation team because we were driving to achieve far more than just transitioning people from one city to another. We envisioned and required a personal touch for each selected leader and their family. As part of our team, Focus Relocation assisted us in engaging each leader with thoughtfulness and skill. Their network provided a personal approach for each family. This provided our business with the opportunity to focus our employees on business matters, all the while knowing that the intricacies of relocation were smoothly moving forward in the background, devoid of high emotionalism. Parenthetically, most of these individuals had previously relocated multiple times in their careers. It was common for me to receive high praise for the work of the Focus Relocation team.
We have utilized Focus Relocation for over 5 years. They are professional and extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of relocation. In addition, they have the ability to effectively communicate with our employees, even when it involves a difficult discussion. They always deliver on their promises and routinely exceed our expectations. I highly recommend them.
Working with Focus Relocation has been a great addition to our relocation program. Our associates have a dedicated and knowledgeable counselor to walk them through the sometimes challenging process of relocation. The administration of our program operates more efficiently now by partnering with Focus. Their management and staff are experts in their field and great to work with!
With many organizations such as ours operating on a lean HR staff, it is a relief to know that I have Focus Relocation to take care of our relocation needs. Having moved several new and current employees, they consistently tell me that this move has been the best, easiest and most organized. The program is cost-efficient and pays for itself.
The most impressive part of your total service approach is the relentless follow-up to bring closure to our requests and needs... We also respect the professional advice that your team provides.
My Relocation Counselor was very patient and helpful with someone like myself - a first-time relocating employee. I really felt comfortable working through my concerns with her. The entire Focus Relocation team made what is usually a stressful process one that went smoothly.
As a transferee and human resources representative of my company, I give Focus Relocation high praise. Our primary relocation contact is more than an outside resource to me; she’s part of my team! She has been invaluable at providing key data to ensure that our relocation policy is a good benefit for our employees, as well as a cost-effective recruitment and/or retention tool for our company. Because I can trust our partnership, Focus gives me one less thing to worry about.
