St. Francis House

Reach Week Fund
Tailored specifically for Reach Week 2018, we’re excited to present the Reach Week Fund! For the entire month of July, we will be collecting monetary donations to benefit two local and essential ministries reaching our community with the gospel: SIRA and Created Gainesville.
SIRA is a crisis pregnancy center that offers pregnancy testing and pregnancy counseling. SIRA Gainesville (click here)
Created Gainesville strives to reach and restore women caught in sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. Created Gainesville (click here)
100% of all monies donated throughout the month of July will be split evenly between these two ministries to help with any immediate financial needs they are facing. Whether or not you are able to serve during Reach Week, consider supporting these two ministries through the Reach Week Fund.
