Missions at St. Benedicts

At St. Benedict’s Episcopal Church, we believe in the power of generosity and coming together as a community to make a difference in the lives of those around us and the world. That’s why, every month, We will be highlighting a ministry as we work to partner with them and help continue their work growing God’s kingdom.

NAMI *(National Alliance on Mental Illness) is a nationwide community-based not-for-profit organization providing education and support to persons with mental illness and their families. One in five people suffers from a mental health disorder at any given time. The disorder not only affects the individual but also impacts their family/circle of others. Sadly, the ongoing stigma associated with mental illness negatively impacts the availability of services and those affected seeking those services. Florida ranks among the lowest for the provision of wrap-around services. COVID dramatically increased the number of persons needing help/service, and our ever-increasing issues of homelessness are also fueling the need for care.
