Women make approximately 80% percent of the healthcare decisions for their families, and we are proud to sponsor a group of ladies who are determined to be informed, proactive and generous about healthcare.
A virtuous woman . . . she opens her arms to the poor, and extends her hands to the needy. Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she smiles at the future." --Proverbs 31: 10, 20, 25
About 100 women from the community have joined the Women of St. Francis, a philanthropic and advisory group has spearheaded meaningful developments in our Women’s Services department. The ladies’ activities have included:
In their fall grants meeting, the ladies will select a need at St. Francis to support with this year's dues. As part of a developing identity, the ladies have expressed this mission statement: “The purpose of the Women of St. Francis is to use our God-given talents and resources as we educate the community and enhance the quality of women’s health.”

“As the wife and daughter of a physician, I am passionate about the health care needs of women in our community and have partnered with the ministry at St. Francis for years. These priorities have naturally led me to seek out organizations such as the Women of Saint Francis where I have formed meaningful relationships with other like-minded women. We work together to educate and equip women to take responsibility for their own personal good health as well as that of their families.”
