HomeProject GabrielGEMSGEMS Eligibility

Who is eligible for GEMS

The GEMS Academy is open to any woman served by Project Gabriel who is “poised for growth,” and recommended by her Angel and the Gabriel Angel Coordinator.  To receive assistance from her personal coach, as well as the incentives and rewards offered by the GEMS Academy, she agrees to complete the required modules (or their equivalents) and have the goal of graduating from the program.

GEMS candidates need not be a certain age, but must be in a position to make choices and set personal goals without severe restrictions placed by parents, civil authorities, physical or mental health.

Dear GEMS Candidate,

On behalf of everyone on the Project Gabriel/GEMS team, we welcome you!

We believe that GEMS is unlike anything you may have experienced.  Choosing our ministry will be an important first step for you.  Here you will find warm and caring people who will focus on you as a person in a spirit of Christian charity and friendship.  Your journey will bring you to new awareness and understanding, and hopefully to fuller, richer life for you and your children.

GEMS flows out of Project Gabriel, an outreach to pregnant mothers in crisis.  The program, which we call the GEMS Academy, is designed to help Project Gabriel moms, who are “poised for growth,” ready to take their place in society.  

Our team has trained professionals and volunteers who desire to share their faith, knowledge, skills, stories, and experiences with you.  Our mission is to affirm your worth as a child of God, and to help you realize the great potential you have as a woman and a mother to change your life and the lives of others.  We pledge to help you discover your own gifts, as you build character and become more confident and self-sufficient.

Again, welcome to GEMS.  As you begin your journey, we encourage you to step out   in faith and trust, knowing that God’s will for you is perfect.  We pray that your time with GEMS will be fruitful.
