Why we raise the money:

 

  • Alachua County is ranked 1st in non-fatal drug overdoses, 7th in FL for repeat births to mothers age 15-17.
  • Bradford County is ranked 8th in the state of Florida with teen births age (15-19) and 44% of children living in a single-parent household.
  • Clay County is ranked 2nd in Florida for children grades K-12 with emotional/behavioral disabilities. An average of 80% of K-12 students are economically disadvantaged in Keystone Heights area schools.
  • Putnam County is ranked 1st in frequent mental distress and over half of the population lives 200% below the poverty level; meaning a 2 person household earns less than $10,000 a year.
  • Union County has the #1 highest infant death rate in the state of Florida. Also ranked 1st in Florida with depressive disorders.
  • Every 15 seconds a woman is battered.
  • Suicide is the SECOND leading cause of death for ages 10-241
  • 7 in 10 never-married teens have engaged in sexual intercourse by age 192
  • 1 in 4 women will have an abortion by the age 45
  • Only 1% choose to place their children for adoption.

 

As Answers fulfills its mission to meet the needs of women in all situations, we expect to see a downward turn in these statistics.
