Focus on the Family (FOTF, or FotF) is an American evangelical group. In 2008, it is actively supporting Proposition 8 in California.

The non-profit organization was founded in 1977 by James Dobson. It is based in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Focus on the Family is one of a number of evangelical parachurch organizations that rose to prominence in the 1980s.

A component of the American Christian right, it is active in promoting interdenominational work toward its views on social conservative public policy. The organization describes itself as "dedicated to nurturing and defending families worldwide" and protecting family values.

Some of the core promotional activities of the organization include a daily radio broadcast by Dobson and his colleagues, providing free resources and family counseling according to Focus on the Family views, and publishing a variety of magazines, videos, and audio recordings.
