GCM is Gainesville Community Ministry
Giving a helping hand
Caring about those in need
Making a difference in people's lives
For over 40 years, GCM has provided emergency help and hope to families and individuals who are in crisis and lack the basic necessities of life.
We offer practical assistance to the elderly, the disabled, the "working poor" and others who are vulnerable to economic crises and who have fallen between the cracks of other programs We are always looking for helpers! Skilled volunteers like dentists and marketing experts as well as general support is appreciated. Some (but not all) positions require some lifting. GCM is supported by local churches, synagogues, civic groups, private grants, individuals within our community who provide financial support, donations of food, clothing, and more.

GCM works hard to give a hand-up,
not just a hand-out
