WFCIF is a community support organization based in Gainesville, Georgia with the mission of “empowering women for life. We welcome all people without regard to culture, race, ethnicity, or religion.” WFCIF serves women from all walks of life and helps to identify and address barriers to success.

Mental Health is defined as the state of wellbeing in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life and is able to contribute to her community. Mental Health services are very costly and are most often made accessible to patients who have health insurance. Gainesville Ga. has a limited number of agencies that provide Mental Health services. The high cost of services and the limited availability make them inaccessible to population most in need.
3. Service & Goals
The primary goal of the organization is to provide free resources needed to help women lead productive and healthy lives both personally and professionally. To that end, WFCIF offers a variety of programs and services that address barriers to success.
WFCIF also recognizes that women who bear sole responsibility of a family undergo a tremendous amount of stress. The demands of being sole provider for a family can place a woman at risk for drug abuse and domestic violence. Study conducted by Boston University found that most people abusing alcohol and drugs are using these substances to self-medicate their pain, stress and mental instability.
The team at WFCIF believe that effective treatment and change must take a multi-faceted approach. In that not only will the individual’s trauma/addiction be addressed but also any underlying causes and concerns. For example, the weekly 12 weeks emotional healing from previous/current traumatic event program. Additionally, the lasting success of the individual is directly related to the behavioral health of the family unit.
