Muslims For Life 
The Islmaic belief that body and soul belong to God and will return to him grounds Muslim recognition of the sanctity of human life and of the need to ensure both physical, mental and spiritual well-being. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has, since its founding, upheld the sanctity of all life as emphasized by Islam. The Holy Quran teaches that life is sacred and reaffirms Biblical teaching that whoever unjustly kills a single person is as if he had killed all of mankind; and whoever saves the life of one person is as if he has saved the life of all of humanity (5:33).We provide FREE education, literature and counseling for individuals, family members and general public.

Saving lives while providing hope and supporting  our community on suicide prevention through  education, advocacy, and compassion. C.A.R.E.S. (Community Awareness in Recognizing & Educating on Suicide) was started after it's founder faced the tragedy of her son's suicide. She found a lack of support and resources in Lee County.  After researching suicide prevention organizations throughout the U.S. and learning all the alarming statistics, she realized that she needed to do something in our community. In April, 2006, C.A.R.E.S. was formed with the help of some wonderful and caring people. The  vision to open a much needed resource center in our community to help anyone in need became a reality on July 10, 2008.
