Phase 2 – Rise Up
Raise $800,000 to Complete UCF Clinic
One year ago we launched Phase 1 – Greater Than: 100 Days to $400,000 of the UCF campaign. After many failed attempts to secure a lease, this bold campaign was prayerfully launched to purchase a property located at 100 Carrigan Avenue, 1 mile from the UCF campus on the highly trafficked Alafaya Trail. Through your generous support we raised a total of $600,000 to meet our goal within an incredible 50 days to purchase the property as a cash, debt free investment.
One year later, after drafting plans, securing a contractor and demolishing the old building, construction work for the new clinic is scheduled to begin on . The 4,136 sf allowed on the lot will hold a 3,100 sf state-of-the-art Choices clinic as well as 990 sf of space to lease.
With YOUR help we can raise the $800,000 needed to bring this clinic to completion!

If this is your first time hearing the news, we are THRILLED for you to join in our excitement!
