  • One More Child

    One More Child's vision is, "to bring hope to hurting children, to show that the love of Jesus changes lives and to impact the life of One More Child. From the opening of our first orphanage in 1904 to our present-day ministries that have expanded to provide safe, stable, Christian homes and services to children and families in need across the state and around the globe, we are honored to be helping children in tangible ways."

  • SIRA

    "Each day, we meet with women who are confused and hurting. We invite them to come in to Sira, to share their story, a story they often feel they can’t share with anyone else, and we listen. Many face an unexpected pregnancy or struggle with a past pregnancy decision. Sometimes, it’s an expecting mom or dad who feels overwhelmed and underprepared to be a parent or raise an additional child. Whatever their story, we welcome them with open arms."

  • Created Gainesville

    "We seek to end sex trafficking and sexual exploitation in our community by reducing the supply, reaching the exploited, restoring lives, and stopping the demand. We believe our part in the global effort to end sex trafficking begins in our local communities. Our goal is to provide effective programs that empower survivors to reclaim their identity and purpose, while disrupting the cycles of exploitation through prevention and awareness."

    "The House of Hope is a prison transitional ministry that assists and helps formerly incarcerated men and women succeed in their reentry into the community.

    We provide a welcoming, and safe faith-based environment which inspires and encourages formerly incarcerated, both male and female, to grow in their relationship with God as they are productively assimilated into society.

    We encourage and enable our residents to get on the path to success during this critical transition time by assisting them with housing, food, spiritual development, opportunities for employment, and life-skills training in a highly structured program of personal accountability.

    We help our residents get surrounded with mentors and support, so that they may grow and serve, becoming productive members of our communities." (from houseofhopegainesville.org)

  • Identify Ministries

    "To provide Christian discipleship, training, and support to people impacted by sexual and relational issues.

    Our goal is that those who struggle with sexual and relational brokenness and confusion will find the relief, peace, freedom, joy, and hope they long for through their personal relationship with Jesus and the people in their lives. We also aim to equip our local community with the confidence and skill required to fulfill its unique roles in the lives of those suffering and looking for their way forward in Jesus."
