Thirty-five years of caring: F.O.R. Celebrities Focus on Renewal, an incorporated neighborhood development center, celebrates more than thirty-five years of service and commitment to the people of Stowe-McKees Rocks. Under the late John Cardinal Wright, the center opened its main street, storefront doors in 1969, with little else than $3,000 a month budget, and the charismatic, volunteer leadership of its co-founders, the Rev, Donald C. Fisher, diocesan clergy, and Sr. Paulette Honeygosky, vincentian sister of charity. Before Bishop Vincent M. Leonard retired in 1983, the center was operating with its own self-sustaining and incorporated Neighborhood Family Health Center, Credit Union, Transportation for the Handicapped Service, and a Town Meeting style of self-government. The Center returned its $3,000 monthly budget to the diocese in 1983, with a wish that "it be given to a neighborhood more needy than us, to help it get started." In 1979, Fr. Fisher relocated to work in Africa. In 1984, Sr. Paulette went to the Jesuit National Education Office in Washington D.C. But the work of the center, well-grounded in the gospel and well-founded in corporate and organization structure, continued on under the leadership of diocesan clergyman, Rev. Regis Ryan, and The Sisters of St. Joseph. This is the McKees Rocko, Pennsylvania story "About Ordinary Folks Who Said We Can't And They Did."
