YOUniversity Model at Gainesville FL
A dark force is at work in Gainesville, just like in major college towns across the country.
DID YOU KNOW:
- Florida’s highest abortion ratios* and rates of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are found in counties with the largest university enrollments.
- Gainesville’s population of 131,000 includes 76,000 students attending the University of Florida and Santa Fe College.
- In Alachua County, home of the University of Florida at Gainesville, 560 babies are aborted for every 1,000 live births.
- Young people age 15 to 24 account for over 50% of the 22 million cases of STIs reported annually.
- Alachua County’s STI rate 175% higher than the overall rate for the state
When these young adults seek relief from their symptoms, will they find only the world’s “solutions” … contraception that is never reliable … surgical abortions that destroy lives … or the equally devastating chemical abortions that promise to make ending a pregnancy as “easy” and “convenient” as popping two pills? Not on our watch.
With a groundswell of support from caring people like you, CPCI is working overtime in Gainesville to eradicate the cause — the campus hook-up culture — through our newly launched, unprecedented, forward-thinking, campus outreach program: YOUNIVERSITY. The compelling facts are the driving force behind CPCI’s strategic and multi-faceted YOUNIVERSITY campus outreach initiative, where success is defined by lives touched and transformed.
YOUNIVERSITY was launched in 2019 with the opening of CPCI’s fifth professional medical clinic in Gainesville. Providentially located within footsteps of the University of Florida campus, CPCI Gainesville is in the thick of a culture that literally needs life support.
Peel back the onion, and you’ll find Alachua County is home to UF and Santa Fe College, both in Gainesville where students comprise 58% of the population. In addition our mobile medical clinic is at FGCU, FSW, and Ave Maria University. Here, as national and state statistics demonstrate, the “hook up” culture is prevalent in the 15-to-24-year-old age group of teens and young adults. And it is here—perhaps more than anywhere else in Florida—that the potential for change is powerful and far-reaching.
