Gainesville Community Ministry
The Gainesville Community Ministry has been helping meet the needs of Gainesville's people for over 40 years. It is their mission to provide education and resources to people stuck in crisis and help end the cycle of poverty that prevents people from helping themselves. They provide practical assistance to the elderly, disabled, "working poor", and others who have fallen in the cracks of other programs. The Ministry is supported by local churches, individuals, and civic groups which help provide the resources they give. A ministry like this is a life-saving resource for people who have been hit with pandemic-related crises and need help. This ministry has seen increased traffic due to COVID-19, as local communities search for extra support during this time.
