C.A.R.E.S. Suicide Prevention is a community-based program that empowers, educates
and provides awareness to professionals, adults and youth. C.A.R.E.S. is a nonprofit
501c3. We are the only suicide prevention and awareness organization in Southwest
Florida with a resource center.
It is with great pleasure C.A.R.E.S. once again is able to offer the children of Southwest
Florida a chance to participate in our Hope Is Possible Grief Camp. The camp is
tailored for children ages 11 to 15 who are coping with grief due to any type of loss in
their lives. Our goal is to help Southwest Florida youth build self-esteem, gain a sense of
belonging and become survivors.
The dates for our Hope Is Possible Grief Camp are June 6-9 and will be held at
Westgate River Ranch. C.A.R.E.S will have a licensed therapist and social workers to
teach coping skills for managing the emotions associated with loss. Through participation
and becoming a vital member of a team, the youth will learn to meet challenges and
obstacles with a spirit of adventure, discipline and perseverance. These virtues can last a
lifetime with our help and support.
C.A.R.E.S. is asking for your help in reaching out to these young people. As a social
service provider in the community, you may come into contact with children or families
who would benefit from participation in our Hope Is Possible Grief Camp.
There is no cost to parents and C.A.R.E.S will provide transportation to and from our
Fort Myers office. The camp has limited space of 15 participants and will be on a first
come, first served basis. If you need additional information, please do not hesitate to call
(239) 931-1200 or email Virginia@caresprevention.org.
