Founded by Dr. Israel Suarez in 1978
Nations Association aims to enrich the Fort Myers Community and its youth in many ways.
Nations streamline its focus to where the need is the greatest; at-risk youth in our community. Through numerous mentoring programs, we educate and prepare these children to be able to handle the ups and downs of life, and assist them in creating a brighter future for themselves and their community.
Nations Association began with a small group of volunteers reaching out to troubled families in the community with a word of hope and a helping hand. Nations offered and continues to offer their services regardless of age, race, gender, or employment. Since 1978 Nations Association, under the leadership of Dr. Israel Suraez and MANY mentors and advisors, has initiated countless programs and services in our community to people in need:
Community Awareness through D.O.V.E.
Youth Prevention - To help with the mental and physical education of our youth.
Marriage Counseling - To help couples work through the pain, anger, and resentment.
Helpline - Advocates provide crisis intervention, information, and referral assistance.
