Vision 2023

Where We’re Going

“The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps.” Proverbs 16:9

We are eager to see what God will accomplish in and through this ministry for LIFE this year. Here are three of our main goals for 2023. 

Addressing the Increased Need in Our Community

April 13th marked the beginning of a new area for LIFE in Florida with Governor DeSantis’s signing of the Heartbeat Protection Act.

With abortion becoming a more limited option, more women and families will need support throughout their pregnancies and beyond. With that in mind, we wanted to share a vision with you on what all this means for FCWS moving forward. We are grateful to God for His guidance as we prepare for this new season ahead. In fact, He had already laid the decision to expand hours of operation on the hearts of our board members even before the abortion ban was being considered. Additionally, we have increased our investment in client marketing, as we are going to need to be more strategic than ever in reaching women before they make a decision. The ban simply reinforces these decisions as we know we will need this growth to meet the growing needs in our community.

With this in mind, our plan to address the growing needs in our community includes:

  • Expanding our hours of operation, staff, and volunteers at all our Centers to support the increasing number of clients we are seeing.
  • Increasing & diversifying our client marketing investment to reach women before they make a decision.
  • Increasing material resources and support for mothers from the time they get a positive pregnancy test to birth and beyond. (See graphic)

These goals are estimated to increase our budget $102,000 annually as a conservative figure. Will you prayerfully consider how you can continue to walk with us in this new era for LIFE? We are in need of additional volunteers at all our locations (especially Northside, Kernan and Clay) to serve during our expanded hours. This is an opportunity to truly be the hands and feet of Jesus. We believe together God has called us for such a time as this.

Call Center Expansion

After our first full year of service through our Call Center, it has become clear that to meet the needs of more families, we need to expand our Clay facility to accommodate more Call Center employees. We are excited to announce that we have broken ground and construction is well under way!

This addition will cost a total of $175,000 to complete — we are $89,063 away from this goal!  Upon completion, we will be able to have our Call Center open 5 days a week to serve women and families in need of pregnancy help.

Thirty19 Movement

In 2023, we are focusing on growing our monthly donations. While one-time gifts allow the ministry to expand, regular monthly gifts help cover our regular expenses.

When you give $30.19 monthly, you are joining the movement to end abortion in Northeast Florida in our lifetime. You are giving life-affirming and life-saving services to families facing unplanned pregnancies in our community with Deuteronomy 30:19 in mind.
